    This was sold to me as Pritchardia hildebrandii dwf blue. I don't think it's the dwf blue but does anyone recognize it as hildebrandii?

    Since we are in the mood for ID's can someone tell me if this is Copernicia alba or prunifera?

    Yes, Pritchardia hildebrandii on the first photo. Copernicia prunifera on the second. :)

    As someone who can't tell most Pritchardias apart, I will have to defer to the MooseMan. However, I will send a shoutout to MattyB for a opinion. He's gotten pretty good at these.

    I can't be certain, but the Pritchardia looks like all the P. hildebrandii dwarf blues that I've ever seen, none of which are ever blue at all.

    I agree with Moose that the center palm is C. prunifera. The taller one on the left might be C. alba.
