Coccothrinax clarensis subsp. clarensis
Santa Clara Silver Palm
A superb dwarf palm from eastern Cuba with small, stiff leaves with few, narrow segments that are finely tipped and silvery underneath and very neat, coarse, woody fibers enclosing the upper portion of the slender trunk. The "Field Guide to the Palms of the Americas" treated C. clarensis subsp. clarensis as a synonym of Coccothrinax gundlachii.
