Name this palm game

Satakentia?

I guess I will need more hints? It is really not that hard its just that the photo does not give enough clues. That is a very long leaf and the palm only puts out a few a year and holds a few compared to most.

I figured the last hint would help and Steve got in under the buzzer for 10 extra bonus points!

Well, "cocosoid palm" does not equal Coccothrinax, but you did guess the genus correctly, Ken.

Does it count if I know how much you paid for it? How many points do I get if I was there when you bought it?

Oops my bad. I was thinking cocosoid but it's Thinacii (but I don't know how to spell it).

Alex, it can get tough keeping up with everyone's guesses and pictures--we love what you contribute to Palmtalk... I will say Dypsis(maybe lutescens?)?

Spooky palm? That photo is wild. Dypsis is my guess too but Andrew got in my mind.
