Sorry, really awful photograph but can anyone confirm that this is indeed Whorled Caraway for me... or provide an alternative identification.

Not easy to distinguish from ....

... Equisetum (which should show sheath teeth, so presumably not this) and Hippuris from this photograph, but I think that you're right.

Thanks lavateraguy. This was shown to me and identified by someone I trust but I didn't want to influence iSpot users until I'd had at least one response.
