Andrew and Biu Van Thanh made over 120 collections of 40 different palm species during the fieldwork in Vietnam.  Some of the collections look a lot like new species, e.g. the species of Plectocomiopsis being pressed in this video. [NOTE: The specimen was collected in the Son Thanh Nature Reserve].
