Coccothrinax fageldei is known from a few populations around Guantanamo.  This species is difficult to see because of protections in the area.  Coccothrinax fageldii is disctinct among it’s congeners as being one of 3 clumping Coccothrinax (psuedorigida and pumila are the other two).  This is a very attractive species that has vigorous growth, salt and wind tolerance.
