Which male Chamaedorea is this?

It is pretty big for a chamy

ignore those woodsoniana leaves, and here is another younger flower spike

Much darker trunk than my woodsoniana and the ridges on the leaves are on opposite sides but it is nearly as big ...

And this is the leaf bigger and broader than the woody. I imagine that it would be obvious if you have one. I think that it is a Chamy and I think that those two are male, I have about thirty other Chamy's which I can identify and it is not obviously one of those. I picked these up as unidentified seedlings years ago. They may even be a hybrid? And those prominent longitudinal ridges on top may help.

Ok thanks guys, I don't know why I could not see that, I couldn't 'see the wood for the trees.'  I have half a dozen other older tepe's up in the sun looking very ragged with small leaves, these younger ones are down in the deep shade, it is like chalk and cheese.

Oh, when I said that I had 30 other Chamys that I could identify, that is only if no one removes the labels. :D

Now I am more confused than is usual. If this dark green trunk with thin white leaf scars is a Chamaedorea tepejilote,

What are all of these other ones that I have with predominantly light trunks and very prominent leaf scar ridges?  All of these next palms are all in my garden and I thought that they were all the same.... tepes. So do you think that all of these others are all woodsoniana?
