From RPS website - "This moderately large palm from lowland forest in southeastern Madagascar produces a slender, smooth trunk to about 15 m (50 ft.) tall that holds a crown of several large, spreading leaves with drooping leaflets.".

The seedling has a pinnate first leaf like D. lastelliana, but this has a larger seed than D lastelliana.

In the past the palm "Dypsis ampasindavae" was named "Dypsis nauseosa" causing tons of confusion.

Also this "new nauseosa" was sold in the past as "sp. Highland Redneck" and "sp. hovitrendrina"

This is a species of palm tree from Madagascar. Only recently did one grow large enough in Hawaii that it could be identified acurately and matched up with plant material taken out of Madagascar. As an adult it has a nice, swollen crownshaft of blue-green with a hint of frosty tomentum on it. THe trunk is green ringed and slightly swollen at the base, very similar in look to that of a Kentia Palm. The leaves are just typical thin feather leaves, somewhat arching and neat- a very attractive palm. I just was lucky enough to seem them growing to mature size in Thailand recently. From what I understand there are even larger ones in Hawaii.
