To Gileno Machado's posts:

The first picture looks like a Calyptrocalyx, without the blushing... maybe a Geonoma?

The second photo looks like a Syagrus--maybe botryophora?

Very close, Alex, the second seedling is actually the entire leaf form of Elaeis guineensis, seed came from Thailand.

The first photo is a Bactris pickelli, a rare species native to the atlantic forest of my town, now almost extinct in habitat.

Gileno, I was going to guess Elaeis sp. because I have trouble telling them apart. But I decided to go with E. oleifera because it's native to South America.

Wow. there has been lots of good stuff here. Thank Gileno for those last ones. They were real cool to me.

Here is a palm I handled today. The locals will know it but lets see if Alex or someone else gets it.

Yes, Andrew was posting second reply as I was saying yes to Chamberonia. First was Satakentia.

Attalea sp.?

It is not a South American Oil Palm and when you find out what it is you will be kind of suprised with that guess.

I guess my last one was found to be mostly uninteresting, so here is another one:

Jody

No.

I put a hint for Alex so here is one for you. That leaf is fully open.

I figured it may take a guess or 2. If CFKINGFISH sees it I bet he will get it.

Ken, even though I am not seeing any armament, I'm going to guess Bactris militaris

OK, Ken. While I don't think this is right based on the length of the rachis, I am going to guess Sabal 'Lisa'.
