During my recent trip to Costa Rica, I learned of a palm called the
stained-glass palm, which apparently only grows in Costa Rica and western
Panama.  The palm was thought to be extinct for some time, until it was
rediscovered in the Rara Avis reserve in Costa Rica.  Does anyone have
information about this palm, namely, its scientific name?  Any general
information would be appreciated as well.  Thanks!
