I thought it could be a species of Coccothrinax?

ditto to B. armata; not likely a Cocothrinax would make it in LV

Thanks for the id. It is a Brahea armata. I also photographed B. capitata in Las Vegas. The leaves look the same but the trunks are much different.

Could this also be a Bismarckia nobilis?

It is really frustrating to id palms. They look so similar. Thanks for the help.
