Fatty-acid (FA) compositions of total lipids from the aerial parts of two newly studied horsetail species, Equisetum scirpoides and E. arvense, and the refined FA composition of E. variegatum growing under the distinctly continental climatic conditions of Yakutia were compared. All three species were shown to be 16:3-type plants according to the contents of the corresponding acid. Acids of the Δ-5 family that were characteristic of evolutionally ancient taxa were identified among the fatty acids. Juniperonic acid occurred in tissues of all studied species; taxoleic acid, in tissues of E. scirpoides, where its content was ~6% of the total acids.
