I’m going to put a spanner in the works and say Dypsis lanceolata which is now Chrysalidocarpus lanceolata. The coloration of the leaf bases and the small amount of furriness on the petioles are not a Chambeyronia macrocarpa thing. Otherwise at that stage the two species look very similar.

Hah... Thanks, Tyrone and PalmsandLiszt. I honestly don't know any better, but I have grown Chambeyronia from seed and it did look similar except for the furriness. If it is Dypsis lanceolata, then even better. So a bit of background as to why I was asking. I paid for a Ponapea hosinoi online and this is the young palm I received in the mail. I tried to tell the seller that this isn't Ponapea and in fact doesn't look like any Ptychospermatinae species, but he is insistent that it is Ponapea. So I turned to PalmTalk for some expert advice. Thank you, everyone!

No problem. That’s what the forum is for. 

It certainly isn’t anything in the Ptychosperma tribe. It would have the ripped leaflet look if it was.

@MnaziI'd never heard of Ponapea Hosinoi before, so there's no way I could rule it out.  I looked in my nursery area for my last surviving Dypsis Lanceolata, but I couldn't find it.  I think it must have died from the last frosts and I just didn't mark it as D-E-D in my spreadsheet.  I do have a couple of smaller C. Macrocarpa in the ground, they are definitely very glossy on the rachis & petiole.  So my guess was definitely wrong... :D

Hi everyone.  I need some more help with ID please.  I planted these some years ago but I don't remember where I got them and I don't really know what they are.  Any help with ID or a suggestion that can point me in the right direction to start looking on PalmPedia will be appreciated.  Thanks in advance, and happy planting!
