Walking Stick Palms, Linnospadix spp.
Walking Stick Palms are small plants, with fishtail-like leaves.
They produce small, colourful red or orange fruits that resemble tic-tacs. The fruits pictured belong to the Northern Walking Stick Palm Linnopadix minor.
They have large seeds, but the little flesh they do have is edible.
The 'Walking Stick Palms' are so-named as the southern species from the sub tropical rainforests in northern NSW and southern Queensland was once used for walking sticks.
