Welcome!
Its a Chamaedorea palm and looks to be C. cataractarum or as some just call it "cat palm".

Hi Scott...how does it differ from a Dypsis lutescens? The two look so similar to me. Is there a clue?

The Dypsis lutescens has a lighter green leaf color and leaf stems and shafts are on the yellow side of green giving D lutescens the nickname of Golden Cane Palm
D lutescens leaves on shade grown plant (pic)...

and will be a nice yellow on sun grown plants.

@ScotTi ... thank you so much for clearing this up. Now i do see the difference between the OP's photos and my Dypsis. I will see if i can find a cat palm at the nurseries here. Smiling
