Trithrinax brasiliensis x Trithrinax acanthocoma

Recommended Posts

kelen

Here in south of Rio Grande do Sul - Brasil, I see only Trithrinax brasiliensis (blue leves with end of the pinas double and soft to the touch) form in natural habitats but in cultivated place I only see Trithrinax acanthocoma (more robust form from north Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Paraná), I already think that they was robbust form when cultivated in good soil but I have some seedlings growing different.

What you think about this? They are two different species?

In natural habitat - Thithrinax growing inside of woods isn't comum.

Kelen I am sure they are two different species. Last year I documented the differences on this website.

Palms in south brazil

I sent my findings to Dr Noblick who agreed with me and said that Henderson was going to send somebody there to review the lumping of the two species together.
