In the front of the new issue of Palms the editors mention recent palm botany publications. It was exciting to note this new revision of Ceroxylon by Maria Jose Sanin & Gloria Galeano. It's a free 64-page PDF download with beautiful photos, maps, and graphs: A revision of the Andean wax palms, Ceroxylon (Arecaceae).
Here are photos of the Ceroxylon parvum (pityrophyllum) at UC Berkeley Botanical Garden:

Thank you Jason for the link. Unbelievable habitat photos of C. quindiuense on page 48. This tip on the difference between. C. ventricosum and C. quindiuense is also very helpful:

"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.

Hey Jason,

Thanks for the link !
It is a fantastic article on a group that I really like.
Presently, I have 7 species in the ground in SoCal and it nice to see what they will look like for my grandchildren .

Be well,

Tom
