Pseudophoenix lediniana is a palm species endemic to the Tiburon Peninsula in southwestern Haiti.[2][3] It is a medium-sized tree, 10–20 metres tall, with pinnately compound leaves and solitary stems slightly swollen at the base.[2]

Pseudophoenix lediniana is rare in the wild.[2] The species was described and named by Robert William Read (1931-2003), and the standard abbreviation Read is used to indicate him as the author when citing its botanical name.[4]
