I picked up these seeds, here in Cronulla, from under a medium sized, to large, thick clump of what I think was an Areca something?
They took about 6 months to shoot. Top of leaf green and silver under. What is it likley to be?

Arenga something most likely... probably engleri.

I see it used as the most common representation of this genus.

Man you have got no idea just how good you are. As a coincidence perhaps that link that you included to your reply to 'pacsoa'
showed two pictures, the second one was submitted by Ian Edwards, and it was from under that very clump that I got the seeds.
Arenga engleri YOU ARE RIGHT. Respect! :)

Good call Bill, I new it wasn't Areca and thought maybe is was something from South America. The gemination wasn't the same and pics of
Arenga seeds I could find were more rounded. The only Arenga I have is hookeriana.

The shape of the seed is similar to Wallichia oblongifolia (densiflora).
