I collected about 40 seeds from fosters botanical garden in Oahu. Unfortunately most of them were infested with some kinda weevil so i had to terminate them. So the 11 seeds that are left are starting to sprout but i dont know the ID :(. So far the top right and bottom left seeds have sprouted. I was so happy to be in Hawaii that i forgot to take pictures of the palms that the seeds came from lol. Any suggestions or leads to a palm ID would be appreciated. otherwise im just going to have to wait for them to sprout :)

Could be some prichardia's (small round seeds) and possibly dypsis for the bigger seed.Can you describe the shape of the fronds ? How big the palm ?
