Clinostigma out there by himself?  Ahhh that's sad.  I've never seen that guy I wonder how long it's been there.

Nice photos.  That Clinostigma has been there for a couple of years I think.  That's what they look like when you don't water enough and they have no mulch, pretty sad.

That "Lytocaryum wedellianum" I'm nearly sure used by labeled Dypsis crinita/fibrosus (can't remember which one, but one of the "hairy" Dypsis).  I think it's a Dypsis, the leaflets are too wide to be Lytocaryum.  What do the others think.

Also, if Jay is reading this, the Chamaedorea tepejilote in the photo is the one that I think is a true clumper.  Is there any way to tell for sure?

Not sure Matt. The trunk wasn't hairy and it looks quite similar to my lyto.

Hmmm...it loooks hairy in the photo.  But of course I could be wrong.  I haven't seen a Lytocaryum that size before.  I just looked at Lytocaryuma nd Dypsis fibrosus photos as PACSOA and it is kind of odd how similar looking they are!  As far as I know they are not even close to being related in any way.

I can't tell, the photos too dark  36_1_56.gif

The base should look something like this;

This is C.costaricana but the suckers should look very similar, especialy the sucker on the bottom left or the top right.

Good catch Matt in SD, that labeled L. weddellianum is definitely NOT one. Your guess was the same as mine, that it is a Dypsis and probably crinita. The leaves are wider then Lyto and nowhere near as green. Frond is overall bigger as well. I had mentioned this to the staff member on duty the last time I was there and she took note.  I beleive that had the label of Vonitra or Voanioala something or other at one time.

Also, there is a Chamaedorea arenbergiana (I think that was what it was labeled) that is really a C. klotzschiana.

Looking at the brighter picture of the C. tepejilote (thanks Dave) I have to say that it is not the clumping kind. I don't see any shoots coming off the bottom near the roots. Drats! I was hoping we could get Jason some seeds. I will again double check next time I am there.

And that's my 2 cents............

Great pics Dave!

Forgot to mention one other note as to why the feather palm is not a Lytocarium weddellianum, and that is no white underside to the leaflets!

They do look like a bunch of solitary tepejilote's planted together though. Oh well, maybe next time but thanks for sharing,

Yes, Balboa Park with the Zoo is definitely a unique place. One of our favorite places to take visitors to when we lived there. Thanks for posting the photos!

Dave,

  Thanks for taking the time to post all of your pictures. It's been several years since my visit there, and I really enjoyed walking around.

  I questioned your pic. also on the Lytocaryum weddellianum. Dosen't look right, the leaves look to big and sprawling out.

  Also, I was wondering why the Foxtails were growing inside and looked stretched out. Certainly they do well outside in SD, don't they?

  Again, thanks.

Hello Jeff! Well I only posted it was a lyto because that's how it was labeled. As far as the foxtails go, I didn't post any pics of them. Those are wodveitchia's if you look closer. ; -  )

Jeff,

The "Botanical Building" where those photos were taken is actually not really "inside".  It is a wood lathe structure, so it certainly filters wind, and is fairly well protected, but it is definitely not like a greenhouse or conservatory.  From what I've seen, everything in there will grow outdoors here.
