Cryosophila

Wikipedia Abstract

Cryosophila is a genus of medium-sized fan palms which range from central Mexico to northern Colombia. Species in the genus can be readily distinguished from related genera by their distinctive downward-pointing spines on the stem, which are actually modified roots. They are known as the "Root Spine Palms".
