The above is the local livistonia palm species called the Malayan Fan Palm ( livistonia rotundifolia). It is distinguished by its brick-red spherical fruits. It can grow tall maybe between 15- 20 m high. Another recognizable characteristic is its palmate leaves which are rounded with tips divided. The inflorescences are also long, up to1.6 m.
It is my hope that in the coming trip I will gather more pictures and information about Kuching trees, palms included for a proposed book I am planning to launch by October this year.
