Description

Johannesteijsmannia perakensis is an endemic species to Perak and to the southern most part of Kedah. Its gigantic, elegant, diamond-shaped leaves fan out like a beacon in the lower forest canopy, presenting an awe-inspiring sight. Locally this palm is known as daun payung (umbrella leaf) or sang in Perak and its broad leaves can come in handy to save you from being drenched in the rain. The seedlings and juveniles of this species are very similar to those of J. altifrons and are morphologically difficult to differentiate at these stages. However, they are easily identified when in flower or fruit; in J. perakensis the rachillae or the flower bearing structure are much branched and spaced out and the fruit is darker brown with more pointed knobs compared to J. altifrons. Another obvious character is, the adult J. perakensis has an erect stem (Dransfield, 1972) and can grow up to 5 m tall.
