Distribution & Habitat:
An attractive, medium sized, solitary fan palm to about 12m high, with a flat, stiff, partially segmented but completely circular leaf. Very similar in appearance to C. miraguama, the main difference being that this species has considerably thinner pinnae.
Said to be one of the most attractive of the Coccothrinax, and hence very popular with palm collectors.
Sunny, moist, but well drained position. Frost sensitive. Slow growing
