Arecaceae > Trachycarpus martianus var. ,

Trachycarpus martianus (also known as Martius' fan palm) is a species in the genus Trachycarpus from two distinct populations, one at 5,000 feet (1,500 m) in the Khasia Hills, Meghalaya Province, in northeast India, the other at 8,000 feet (2,400 m) in central northern Nepal. There may be well be other populations. The main identifying characteristics are the regular leaf splits (to about half way), the coffee bean shaped seeds (similar looking to Trachycarpus latisectus) and the bare, as opposed to fibrous trunk. The new leaf spear and edges of the petioles are covered with a white tomentum.[1]
