This is one of the most highly sought after Calyptrocalyx 'species'... I don't know if it's a cultivar, or an undescribed species, but it is unique. The leaves are unsplit, forked like a fish tail, and some forms have a deep purply maroon, with the new leaf being a flame red. Very small palm, best for pots (may get lost in landscape otherwise).
