Thanks for this id too.

In Livistonia chinensis the terminal ends of the leaves are drawn in to a thread like structure (mature leaves).  Here it is not so.  Therefore please post a picture of the habit of the plant.

I will search for more pictures. If not, I will make it a point to take more pictures during next visit.

I have doubts. There are no spines on the petiole??

If “spine” is the only issue, I think, we have an answer for that in Flora of Pakistan –

I guess ID is correct !

I do not know the id.
