This is a cool palm where one of the potential identifying characters is a swollen but. Know what it is?

I know this one only because I saw you post it in another thread. I was surprised at how prominent the petiole armor looked. I guess I always thought that this species had spines sorta like a Butia, ie not so defined. I have a small one that is very slow growing and the spines are kinda so so on it. I'm not saying what it is, I'll let someone else guess.
