A small palm-like tree: sts. 2-6 ft., much swollen at the base: lvs. 2-4 ft., stiff spreading; pinnae 3-8 in. long, linear mucronate-acuminate; blade of carpophyll tawny-woolly when young, at length glabrescent above, ovate-rhomboid, long-acuminate, margin deeply pectinate lacerate: scales of male infl. about ¾ in. long, with a slender terminal point of the same length: seeds 1½ in. long, obovoid-oblong. Burma, Siam, Cochin China.—Apparently hardy in Fla. It is rare, occurring in only a few gardens. It is a beautiful species, easily recognizable by its trunk which is swollen very much like that of Dasylirion, and according to Nehrling grows much faster than the species more commonly cult. It is certainly deserving of more general cult. CH
