From the vicinity of Madagascar’s newest protected area, Makira, in the north-east of the island, and is known from two mountains in the eastern central part of the Makira protected area in mountain summit vegetation, elfin forest and mountain thicket on quartzite, 650–950 m. This slender palm forms clumps of stems, each up to 5 m in height and 3 cm in diameter. Each stem bears up to seven leaves in a shuttlecock-like crown. The leaves are almost 1 m in length and bear 20 to 40 elliptical leaflets with drip tips. The flowers are crowded on stout inflorescences; these are attached directly to the stem below the crown of leaves and are up to 20 cm long.
