Understory palm in Madagascar where it is relatively common (still). Has a very skinny stem and is solitary or clustering. Leaves are bifid (entire) with a deep V at the end of each leaf until plants mature. Though still wedge-shaped, become more thickly pinnate/ fishtail. The wonderfully huge, solid leaves of seedlings give way to a bit more ordinary looking leaves of adults. Leaves tend to be very flat and are lighter underneath than above. New leaves are a deep bright red. Rare in cultivation- so rare that hardiness unknown.
