Daemonorops kurziana Hook.f. ex Becc. (Arecaceae) : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1)

This was photographed by me in August 2002 from Middle Andaman Island, India. This was a common climber in a dense interior hill forest at about 100 m altitude.    

The images of the cane shown matches more with Calamus andamanicus. In Daemonorops, the inflorescence is enclosed in a boat shaped bract.

Thank you … for the correction. I have no knowledge on palms and … identified the same.
