Hi all,

please help me identify this palm tree. Looks like a 'Livistona australis'. But this is dwarf and the leaves have a fold. so i am in doubt.

Thank you

Could it be a Sabal minor (dwarf palmetto)?

Taking a close look at the second picture the spines along leaf stem and leaf shape, my guess would be Livistonia Chinensis. The palm is still in its juvenile stage of life and leaf appearance will change.
