Certainly the most attractive species of the Ivory Nut Palms. It has a fibre covered trunk, a large shuttlecock-crown and the huge spherical fruiting head can be 18 inches across! The individual fruits are attached to it much as with Pandanus or Nypa. Their flesh is edible and sold on local markets, but not extremely desirable. Only recently described and little known in cultivation outside of its native Ecuador, northern Peru and northwestern Brazil.
