The Cryosophila Williamsii palm is very rare and critically endangered in the wild mostly due to habitat loss. It has a solitary trunk which can be straight or curved covered in distinctive spiny roots, whitish in colour, bent downwards especially on the lower half of the trunk. The crown is made up of between 17-25 almost circular deeply divided fan shaped leaves, dark green in colour above and silvery below. This very attractive palm can reach btween 3-7m tall in habitat. 

Definately one for the collectors.
