If it is really a wild palm and not something that was cultivated, then there are not many choices it could be according to POM. Either that or it is something new.

Olivier - great to see habitat photos. :drool:

Any habitat data? Soil type, rain fall, elevation, temperature range? Can't see any seedlings in these photos, are these palms regenerating? :)

They are not manajarensis, manajarensis comes from much further south and the meally bug pattern is more pronounced. I saw manajarensis in habitat and there is no mistaking it. I would also guess tsarovoisara.

according to me, the 2 specimens are differents. The form of the crownshaft is very different, and the second one is much more massive ..
But not sure ...

Oliver,the very 1st pic ( not any of the others) looks very much like Ampasindavae thats been battered by wind, would be great to see more of the lower crownshaft and trunk of the first pic, is that possible? Heres a few pics from here of Ampasindavae . Thanks for the habitat shots, keep em comn. Pete :)

Hi Pete, I don't think any of the photos are Dypsis ampasindavae, heres a couple of the close ups, too skinny, plus only the first photo has a stitch of white in the crownshaft, and that's probably because it is in lower light conditions, still being so close to the ground with all of those bushes, Ed http://www.rarepalms...ix/DypAmp.shtml

Ed, the pic on rarepalmseeds looks nothing like the Ampasidavae here or Loweys or like any I have seen in Oz or like any pics i have seen from Hawaii either, anyone else like to comment on the pic from RPS? ( Maybe, they eventually look like that?) Heres another pic of the lower crownshaft and trunk showing some white. I would like to see a lower shot of the 1st pic Oliver took. Pete

One explanation is that the RPS ones are ampasindavae and the ones we are all growing from that seed from back in the 1990's is something different, something from much higher altitude.

Rich, one musnt forget how we all discovered the that plants grown in the 1990s are actually Dypsis Ampasindavae. From Jeff Marcus sending inflorescence to Kew for identification, his palms are the same as the pics i posted(larger of course) :)

I hear you Pete but it would extraordinary if the distribution of ampasindavae stretched from sea level in the north to 1200m in the centre. If I remember correctly, according to PoM the only large Dypsis to get so high are decipiens, ambositrae and oropedionis. Clearly it is not the first two but it does look superficially similar to the picture of oropedionis in PoM to a botanical idiot like me.

Rich, I didnt actually read till now at what elevation and where the shots were taken so in saying that , if Ampasindavaes closest sp is Tsaravoasira, then Tsaravoasira it is for me. Also, many things are possible , Justin took a spectacular shot of Masoala M, way out of its "said to be zone" . Along with many many "New" palm discoveries,the most famous beingTahina, but until the "New" edition of POM is available, we wont hear or see much ( makes you want the book more thats for sure :) . With the recent news on seeing "Robusta" in the wild, ive heard that are finally closing in on the elusive "Bejouf" :D edit..i still thinkRPS needs to upload a better pic

Sorry, but it was impossible to go close to the specimen of the first picture. According to me, it's the same species that those of the following photos (except the last one), in habitat they were very closed, less than 2 or 3 kms.
Quite sure it's not D ampasindavae, this species is not knomn from this area (it's from the North-West)

Hi Oliver, I agree, all the species in photos posted on this thread including Pete's, are the same species, and the last photo too, I think the one in the last photo only looks different because of the heavy brush that it has been covered by all its life, which in Florida would have done nothing but keep it from getting sunburned, for instance full sun in Hawaii is like moderate Oak cover in Florida, RPS photos are a different species, and yes Pete I agree, but according to Dean, tsaravoasira is no longer a valid name, Ed http://www2.palmpedi...is_tsaravoasira
