Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - the foxtail palm was not even known to botanists until 1983 and is now listed as a threatened species in australia. It was first introduced to the american horticultural trade in 1995. Wodyetia bifurcata is the only plant in the genus, which was named in honor of wodyeti, an australian aboriginal bushman who was the last male in his line of melville range aborigines. Wodyeti had a vast traditional knowledge of the foxtail palm's natural habitat. The species name, bifurcata, comes from the latin, meaning twice forked which is in reference to the unique shape of both the fruit and the fish-tailed leaflets.
