This is a palm I have been looking for on a few trips to Vietnam.
Unfortunately it was a wet morning and I had to climb a slippery slope of clay and loose gravel to get to the forest.
Once I was up in the forest on the slippery trail there it was.
Have had the pleasure of seeing this beautiful small palm in habitat over the last few days. Truly spectacular
Off to Kham Duc tomorrow
Love this country
