Palmate Palm ID

It looks like a stout, compact version of Chamaerops humilis with upright leaves and no armature. Any ideas?

Trithrinax campestris maybe?

Trithrinax is more heavily armed than Chamaerops, with spines at the trunk, and has a needle sharp spine at the tip of each leaflet.  My 'guess' would be an extremely rare and choice form of Chamaerops.  A very attractive palm, whatever the ID !  :greenthumb:

Trithrinax campestris have no teeth on the petiole but lots of spines among the fibers surrounding the trunk. I'm with Darold, Chamaerops 'vulcano' perhaps?

Thanks @Josue Diaz! I agree, this one's hurting my brain.

 

That was my first thought @Darold Petty! Maybe the owner of this wonderful garden will see this and chime in.

Looks like Chamaerops "Vulcano" to me.

Looks like a Trithrinax.  In addition to what is mentioned above, Chamerops have longer petioles, thinner petioles.  At least in my observations.

Regular green form yes, not "Vulcano" form. "Vulcano" form looks like this. One of the most beautiful forms of Chamaerops. :greenthumb:
