Located in Peru, only pics available.

2m in height. Is this a Cocos nucifera? Parajubaea cocoides?

Linked from the original site. They took them out.  I guess because they confirmed its ID.

I can't see the pictures either, but aren't parts of Peru pretty low and tropical?  Near the Amazon River?

That particular coco is in Lima (by the beach, Lima District), Peru. Days in 85F nights 75F.

But for some reason the coco is aborting its newly developed fruit. Which made some folks think it was a Parajubaea cocoides (Due to the minute size of the undeveloped fruit).

It was identified as a dwarf green coco.

I don't see any resemblance to Parajubaea cocoides. For me it's a coconut too.

It is a coconut for sure, just do not know why it is aborting its fruits, that is worth learning about!
