I always assumed that Saribus was derived from Cerberus, which is a three headed dog guarding hell in Greek mythology. I figured this was the case because of the many ferocious "teeth" that are on the petioles. At least it made sense to me.

I only know "seribu" is the indonesian word for "1000" . Maybe it has something to do with that...since some of the palms grow naturally in Indonesia.

I think it's important to correctly re-classify species, genera, families and so on, based on the latest scientific knowledge. Saribus rotundifolius started out as a Corypha rotundifolia back in 1786, then had a brief stint as a Licuala rotundifolia in the early 1800s. In 1838 Blume described a new genus Saribus and included it there as a Saribus rotundifolius, together with S. chinensis (now Livistona chinensis) and S. cochinchinensis (now L. saribus). Independently in the same year Martius made a revision of Livistona (which at that time only included two species - L. humilis and L. inermis) and moved to the L. rotundifolia and two more species - L. chinensis (previously known as Latania chinensis), L. australis (previously known as Corypha australis).
So I guess what I'm trying to say is if we ignore the facts we might as well keep calling it a Corypha rotundifolia

Thanks for the lesson Alex.

I only have three species from the genus Livistona; chinensis, rotundifolia, and saribus. They all seem to belong. Now rotundifolia is out on its own. Saribus as a genus? Can't we look for new palms instead of shuffling names? I thought only did this within the genus. Oh, I forgot about Veillonia - Cyphophoenix.
