browsing the the palm collection of user palmbob, I think it maybe an Actinorytis calapparia?

Anyone disagrees or confirms?

All images came from the same plant. I was referring to the one that shows the trunks in the foreground.

All I see is a trunk of the palm you are referring to. Archontophoenix?

How I didn't think of that. I think you are right unless someone else disagrees and gives a better alternative. I don't see a lot of tropical palms in WA so this is my weak link.


Thanks

Sorry... too many palms (perhaps many many dozens, if not hundreds) have identical looking trunks. I hesitate to even guess. You would near a clear shot of the crown of the palm (the entire leaf section) preferably not mingled with another palm for me to guess. Trunk rings seem a bit far apart for even the happiest, fastest growing King Palm.

This palm is not for sale. It was planted insided the househould plant nursery. It was planted among so many other palms or plants that I couldn't get a good angle to photograph other areas of the palms. I probably be back there in about 1 month to photo more of this palm for better id.

Thanks.

I'd ask the owners if they know as they probably have it on an invoice when it was shipped in.

I think this is the same plant as the one I posted earlier. I photographed it at the Atrium of the Mirage in Las Vegas.

Could it also be a Veitchia?

Could it also be something similar to Bentinckia nicobarica as indicated in your Plantfiles?

Thanks for the info. Palmbob is probably right about the palms at the Mirage-they are more likely to be Adonidia. The ones in Seattle are unsolved for the moment.
