Name this palm game

Tom it looks a lot like an Astrocaryum. But since you already said No, Aiphanes sp. would be my next guess

The habitat looks Neotropical. So for that reason I'm going with Manicaria saccifera as my next guess

You are correct! There are more pictures of them in my post about my trip to Belize in the Travel Logs section.

Yeah, that moss all over those trunks wouldn't be indicative of Florida...

It is rare to be growing where it is natively

I think this hint is correct. It is the only syagrus found outside of South America.

Pinanga simplicifrons?

no :)

Ken I think it is a Pinanga of some kind. Bruce responded with a smiley face to my Pinanga simplicifrons guess last week.

We will need to give Bruce a jingle and see what he says.

I'd bet compost on it being a Pinanga. P.coronata would be my most obvious guess.

Hey, Ken. Could be Acrocomia, Aiphanes, Bactris, or Gastrococos.... hard to tell. If I had to guess, though, I would say A. aculeata.

Well the good news is the shotgun blast hit the target. Bad news is, wrong choice.

My next guess was going to be Gastrococos... a.k.a. Acrocomia crispa.

BTW, is the latter now an accepted name, or is there some controversy?

I came across this nursery the other day and had to snap a photo... but didn't feel that it justified starting a new topic. Yellow queen palms, anyone?!

I figured I would bump this with a new one. This palm is easy but with all these hits I am sure it will help some lurkers learn some more ID hints.

my guess is burretiokentia, either vieillardii or hapala, and I am thinking hapala
