obviously its a dypsis, any guesses of what could it be?

???

I guess I'm not so good at identification of seedlings as to know why it is obviously a Dypsis, Chrysalidocarpus, or even a Vonitra.  Maybe you or someone else will explain why you rule out everything except Dypsis?

I conclude that this is some type of Archontophoenix, possibly tuckeri. Due to the similarity.

The only thing that is obvious about this seedling is that it's a pinnate palm.  Many seedlings are bifid and start out like that.  If you had a photo of the seed that would help a lot with an ID.  Archontophoenix is certainly possible and the seed would be small and spherical.  Some Chrysalidocarpus seeds are small but are more oblong with a pointed end like these Chrysalidocarpus pembana seeds below.

The seed is round, here's the seed in one of the three palms that were sent to me.20221117_204007.thumb.jpg.1621c4a3291708afc41ae2971b6e8307.jpg

 I have a Ptychosperma elegans, Archontophoenix tuckeri and Chrysalidocarpus pembana seedlings in the following photo at roughly the same size.  Not so easy to tell them apart - at least for me!  Anyone want to give it a shot?  LOL!

I'd like a shot at this! Ptychosperma elegans, pembana and tuckerii in that order is my guess lol

I assume that you are listing from left to right.  No, sorry.  Even if you meant from right to left it's not correct.  So that leaves just 4 other possibilities.

Hold up.  Let me break out a confusion matrix.  We are going to figure this out...

Archontophoenix tuckeri Chrysalidocarpus pembana Ptychosperma elegans
Ptychosperma elegans Archontophoenix tuckeri Chrysalidocarpus pembana
Chrysalidocarpus pembana Archontophoenix tuckeri Ptychosperma elegans
Archontophoenix tuckeri Ptychosperma elegans Chrysalidocarpus pembana
