I downloaded it and printed it out . . .
It's sitting alongside the Throne of Doom awaiting my pleasure!

Air-drained coastal slope, 20 miles inland, almost entirely coastal influence. Slightly psycho Mediterranean climate.

"The best way to distiguish it from C. quindiuense is in its grouped pinnae spreading in various planes, whereas, C. quindiuense has regularly arranged, pendulous (in one plane) pinnae."
It seems that Pauleen's Ceroxylons in Ventura are indeed C. ventricosum.
