    These are just a few of quite a number of old friends whose names I never knew. They are mainly from Monteverde cloudforest locations.

    Thanks for IDs, if you know them.

    Chamaedorea costaricana or similar species.

    Iochroma perhaps?

    These are pretty obscure. There are so many possibilities. Thanks for that suggestion, saltcedar. I can see if it's right on, or if it starts me looking close to the mark. I suppose my best chances are in returning there and doing a little learning.

    The orange berries look like Acnistus arborescens. The palms with orange seed stalks are certainly Chamaedorea but I cannot say which species. The last picture looks like a different genus of palm.

    The third photo looks like a Bursera species. Maybe B. simarouba? There are a number of specie with similar looking bark...
