The Dictyosperma is a quite rare collectors palm from the Islands Mascarene.

Newly emerging leaves are a bronze colouring with red edges. A medium sized palm with a solitary trunk, dark grey in colour with a slight bulge at its base. The Crownshaft distiguishes it from the standard Dictyospermum Album by tending to be reddish brown.

This very ornamental palm is hard to come by and quite sought after.
