Coccothrinax Borhidiana. Borhidi's Guano Palm.

The Coccothrinax Borhidiana is of all the probably the most striking and desirable of all of the Coccothrinax species. It is also critically endangered in habitat, restricted to an area of less than 10km squared, threatened by development, road constuction, fire and nearby oil extraction. It is a very slow growing, smallish palm with a solitary slender trunk covered in a fibrous 'coat'. It's crown is very dense and tight made up of rigid leathery circular leaves on short petioles, greyish-green in colour on the topsides, being a little lighter on the undersides. Tolerant of salt and drought once established. This strikingly beautiful palm is a great one for collectors.
