Description

It is apparently closely related to C. maxima, which it resembles in general habit, sporting a straight, slender trunk and a typical tall crown with relatively shorth, strongly arching leaves. C. bacsonensis is much smaller in all parts however, normally not much more than 10 m. (33 ft.) tall, and has heavily drooping leaflets.
