The Manambe palm (Dypsis decipiens) is a species of flowering plant in the family Arecaceae. It is found only in the central highlands of Madagascar, between Fianarantsoa and Andilamena. The species is threatened by habitat loss, increasing frequency of fires, and over-exploitation of its seeds for the horticultural trade.[1]
