Beccariophoneix fenestralis

I like Zeeth's answer and I am pretty sure that is not in northern California.

Thanks to all who helped!Indeed Ken this certain palm is photographed in Jupiter Fla.looking around the area, this palm tricked me for a cocos nucifera! until closely inspecting the trimmed leaf sheaths.I was told it was a v.fenestralis though.Zeeth is correct!

That's some sort of coccosoid palm... Ken doesn't grow queens so maybe Attalea? If not, some sort of Syagrus--where in the ballpark am I, Mr. Johnson?

This is turning out to be harder than I thought it would be for you guys... another hint: this palm is at MBC and if you were at the bieenial, you probably saw it(Dr. Noblick mentioned it on my tour). One of my favorites for the genus--wait was that two hints?..

Andrew from the hints above I take it that it's a Syagrus. Possibly Attalea. Which one - no idea

I looked real close at this photo and saw PEOPLE! Who are those people? Must be a meeting at a famous garden in South Florida.

Just trying to get some hints here.... :interesting:

I went through every picture I took at MBC during the biennial and I got nothing. I guess your tour group took a different path than mine.

Attalea funifera. I have one in the ground too--the piassava palm.

From the original picture I was expecting a palm MUCH larger than that. Without anything up close to give a sense of scale the only thing to look at are the people's feet in the background. Since the pic was taken down low it distorts the perspective making the people look much closer and the palm much larger than it actually is.

Well, sorry to accidentally fool you but tis the name of the game! This palm is afterall, an Attalea, so it will be as big as you expected it--in time...
