Palm trees are not native to California…

Davis palms

…is what I was going to say. But, turns out there is a palm tree that’s native to California, the Washingtonia filifera (a.k.a. Desert Fan Palm, California Fan Palm, and Arizona Fan Palm).

These two palm trees near the Davis Amtrak station, however, are not California Fan Palms. At least, I don’t think they are. The fan palm’s fronds are more spread out and, well, fan-like. Since I don’t know what these trees are I’ll redub them as Davisvillia filifera amtrackius.

Now, what taxonomic journals can I submit this to?
