The spineless ones are now in Attalea, which has the appropriate stature, fruit that look somewhat like small coconuts (see archaeological evidence above), and today grow on the hills above the beaches of Panama.
That leaves Attalea butyracea, whose fruits can superficially be confused with very small coconuts.
In seasonal swamps in the eastern Amazon basin the Large tall-stemmed Palms are Attalea maripa, A.
Large tall-stemmed Palms are also found in forests on alluvial soils subject to annual flooding; the most frequent species there are Attalea phalerata, Euterpe precatoria and Socratea exorrhiza.
A study on Attalea humilis revealed an intermediate resilience level for this species which is adapted to fire (Souza & Martins, 2004).
Species such as Geonoma deversa, Oenocarpus bataua or Attalea maripa are widely distributed, whereas others, for example Geonoma tenuissima or Cryosophila macrocarpa are restricted to very small areas (Henderson et al.

Attalea colenda (Arecaceae), a potential laurie oil resource.
Fibre producing palms include Leopoldinia piassaba, Aphandra natalia, Attalea colenda, Mauritia flexuosa and several species of Astrocaryum (Balslev & Barfod, 1987; Henderson, 1995; Borchsenius et al.
The cake that remains after oil extraction of palms is highly nutritious, with elevated levels of protein (nearly 20% in Attalea speciosa) and/or carbohydrates (nearly 85% in Bactris gasipaes).

Two other groups of neotropical rain-forest palms, Chamaedorea and geonomoid palms, have questionable occurrences in the early Tertiary of southern North America (Daghlian, 1981), and numerous extant genera of rain-forest palms have more or less tentative late Tertiary pollen records from the Neotropics: Astrocaryum, Attalea
(as Maximiliana), Bactris, Chamaedorea, Cryosophila, Desmoncus, Euterpe, Iriartea, Manicaria, Mauritia, and Synechanthus (Hoorn, 1994; Graham & Dilcher, 1998).
