This is the more svelte version of Phoenix loureirii and less commonly grown in cultivation... looks like a miniature Phoenix reclinata with thinner trunks and more profuse clusters of trunks. Many palms labeled as this may actually be hybrids- not sure how to be sure if that's the case or not, though.

Regional...
