They are native to the Maluku Islands, Sulawesi, and Western New Guinea where they grow near rivers and in forest clearings up to 900 m in elevation. It is named for Antonio Pigafetta and is sometimes misspelled as Pigafettia. Thought to contain only one species, in 1994 it was recognized to have two; P.elata and P. filaris, both of which are among the fastest growing palms.(Dransfield) [more]
Plectocomia is a genus of in the Arecaceae family. It contains the following species: [more]
Raphia may mean: [more]
Salacca is a genus of 20 species of native to tropical southeastern Asia. They are very short-stemmed palms, with leaves up to 6-8 m long. The leaves have a spiny petiole; in most species they are pinnate with numerous leaflets, but some species, notably S. magnifica, have undivided leaves. [more]
