Even the licuala is joining in the mast fruiting. This fan palm has no above-ground stem and almost every individual was fruiting, the fruits getting dark red as they mature. It was quite a sight to see these normally reticent palms doing their thing. It might be a good time to study the frugivores that disperse the fruits.
