Chelyocarpus sp. 'Bolivia'

Figure 1. C. sp. 'Bolivia', leaf detail.

Distribution & Habitat:

Central Bolivian rainforest, near the Andes (quite some distance from all other reported areas of Chelyocarpus)


Very attractive, understory fan palm.


Sheltered, and moist. This species is probably very cold tolerant, since it is found in a rather cold area.
