Phytelephas microcarpa Ruiz et Pav. is a palm of the Arecaceae family. The name of the genus comes from the Greek phyton = plant and elephas = elephant, while the specific epithet refers to the size of the fruit. The genus Phytelephas is essentially northern South American and grows along the Caribbean coastal lowlands of Colombia and Panama, and the Pacific coastal lowlands of Ecuador and Peru.

The hardened albumen of the seeds of this palm is a fairly fine vegetable ivory, used to make buttons and carved objects.
