Thank you to a new contributor today, Morabeza79@Flickr for today’s photograph. I highly recommend visiting the original posting (and this related one) for Morabeza79’s accompanying write-up. He also has a set of 150 (as of today) palm photographs.
As noted by Morabeza79, this is IUCN Red List vulnerable species (VU B1+2c). It is endemic to Madagascar, where it can be found in only 2 to 5 lowland rainforest localities (IUCN states 3 localities). The number of total individuals in the wild is approximately five hundred.
Few photographs of the species in the wild are available online, but here are two of the same individual plant: Orania ravaka via Palm and Cycad Societies of Australia, and Orania ravaka from the commercial rarepalmseeds.com site.
