ABSTRACT
Reinhardtia elegans Mart. (Arecaceae) is a Mexican endemic species occurring in some cloud forests of Oaxaca and Chiapas, whose importance has been poorly documented in floristic studies of southeastern Mexico. We provide information about its habitat and population structure in La Chinantla region in Oaxaca, Mexico.
