This is a cool palm where one of the potential identifying characters is a swollen but. Know what it is?

Same palm looking up. Can this be called the love palm in addition to the overtop palm?

Good job, Matt. I have seen S. amara before, but I hadn't noticed that character. I have another trunk photo for the palm guessing game:

Ohhhhhh, close? Those ever increasing growth rings with the light grey internodes just says Pseudophoenix to me so I'm gonna go with P. lediniana?

:hmm: Would anyone recognise a Brongniartikentia vaginata if they saw one?

Has that troubled your imagination? Relax, it looks like this.

I know this one only because I saw you post it in another thread. I was surprised at how prominent the petiole armor looked. I guess I always thought that this species had spines sorta like a Butia, ie not so defined. I have a small one that is very slow growing and the spines are kinda so so on it. I'm not saying what it is, I'll let someone else guess.
