The Myola Palm is a tall palm growing to about twenty metres tall with a trunk diameter of up to 30 cm, and broader at the base. The pinnate fronds are green above with silvery scales on the lower surface, and grow to about four metres in length. It produces branched clusters of creamy white flowers from the base of the green crownshaft in late autumn winter (May to July). The flowers are similar in appearance to those of the Alexandra Palm (A. alexandrae). The oval fruit is red and grows to about 20 mm in length. The palm has a very small range in Queensland and is listed as endangered.
Archontophoenix myolensis is found on the Barron river near the town of Kuranda in tropical north east Queensland
