What happened Jody ? Was my guess of aiphanes aculeata so bad that you gave up on this thread?

Sorry, Steve. I haven't checked in awhile. That guess is not correct.

Chamaedorea pumila ??

No

Wow, I didn't expect this one to be that hard.

Here's some clues (from PACSOA)

Distribution & Habitat:

Grow in wet forest between 500 1000 m altitude in slope of Cordilleras de Tilaran, Central and Talamanca in Costa Rica , and Serrania de Tabasara in Panama.

Chamaedorea ___________ is a very beautiful palm, easily recognized by its simple and oblong blades, prominent serrate leaf borders, shallowly bifid and with numerous lateral veins. This species is very uncommon and is found only in very wet forests on the slopes of altitude.

So here's Jody's again. Daryl alrady said Astrocaryum and that's what I was thinking. So I'm gonna guess A. alatum?

Who's next?

I'll go. I'll even give you the whole palm. Juvenille, but still distinct in it's look. If you've ever seen this palm you'll know it. The problem is that not many people have seen it.

I did it again... two different shots of the same palm. I am not sure of the species, but the genus is Astrocaryum.

This one shouldn't be too difficult (and I promise is not one that I have done before):

Which other one, Ken? Aren't there four species in the genus? Just kidding! It is a bottle palm getting ready to flower. A leaf had just come off, and the color was amazing. Here is another closeup shot and an overall shot:
