Dypsis

Dypsis Image
Dypsis is a relatively large Genus of palms endemic to the Island of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean.

As a result of taxonomic re-classification, many of the palms once in the Genus Chrysalidocarpus, Lutescens for example (main image), have been now placed in the Genus Dypsis. Much of this work was carried out by Dr John Dransfield, principally of Kew Gardens UK, and has one of the palms Dypsis dransfeldii, named in his honour (in addition to the newly named palm genus Dransfieldia - see Dransfieldia micrantha).
