Vernacular names
English: Manambe Palm

Dypsis decipiens, the Manambe palm, is a species of flowering plant in the Palm family (Arecaceae).[3] It is found only in the central highlands of Madagascar, between Fianarantsoa and Andilamena at 1,200 to 1,700 meters elevation. The species is threatened by habitat loss, increasing frequency of fires, and over-exploitation of its seeds for the horticultural trade.[1] Its most unique characteristic is that it commonly produces twin trunks like the letter "V", each trunk being up to 65 feet (20 meters) in height and up to 28 inches (70 centimeters) DBH (diameter at breast height).[4] There can also be three trunks, or a single trunk.
