Pritchardia species ?;



Palm Tree for ID : 080611 : AK-3: Taken at Muscat, Oman on the 3rd of June, 2011.
Presently flowering.

This is Pritchardia sp, may be P. pacifica.

It looks like some Sabal species to me…
anyhow it is not Pritchardia pacifica as P. pacifica’s leaf petiole is white in colour.

Here is a snap of Fan Palm. Please identify.

Using the KEY at, (i) costapalmate leaf with split tips (ii) arrow shaped hastula, I arrive at probability of two Genus – Pritchardia and Sabal.

Thanks. Most probably it is Pritchardia species.

Thrinax radiata Lodd. ex Schult. & Schult.f. ?

I think looks different as per images at
