Calamus erectus Roxb.

Another rattan from northern Myanmar (see Myauk Chee Kyein and Hukaung Valley Rattan Survey). This one is Calamus erectus Roxb., a clustering, but non-climbing, palm found in Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Thailand. Beautiful whorls of long yellow spines. Unfortunately, this rattan is more photogenic than useful, as the cane is relatively short, thick, and unflexible given its free-standing habit. [NOTE: Link is to the C. erectus entry in Andrew Henderson's wonderful Palms of Southern Asia book].
