Chamaedorea I.D needed

In the mountains between Oaxaca and Veracruz I saw observations of these "Chamaedorea tepejilote", but their fruits don't match C. tepejilote, they are bigger and rounder than normal Chamaedorea tepejilote fruits. Could these palms be another variety of C. tepejilote?

Thanks, I first thought it was C. alternans but I didn't know if it was native to mexico or not.

Just when I thought my new tall Chamaedorea garden was complete, apart from the elusive nationsiana, up pops another lovely tall one that I have never heard of. The hunt begins ... again.

The fronds sure look like the Tepejelote I have . I was just cleaning up the two that I have , they are very tall and I had to use a 6 foot ladder to clean the trunks to the crown. Mine don't produce much seed , but if I remember correctly , they are black when ripe. I bought both from the same grower as seedlings about 20 years ago and one formed a nice clump and the other just stayed as a single. The clumping one has "shoots" coming out of the trunks similar to a Dypsis Lutescens. The one thing about the C. Tepejelote , other than its size , is the bright yellow stripe up the petiole. Very nice palms if grown in mostly shade , similar leaf texture to the Microspadix.  Harry

After all they are alternans, C. alternans look very similar to tepejilote with the only differences of their inflorescences being shorter and greener and their seeds being rounder and bigger. Here's a video of a potted C. alternans.
