Ptychosperma macarthurii - identified

Previously (Palm tree flowers with bees), I was wondering what type of palm we had and was unsure whether it was a Ptychosperma macarthurii - it looks like one, but I had never seen the red fruits on it.

Well, now I'm sure that it must be one - see the red fruits!

Hmmm anonymous comment by WW :)

Yes, the birds kept flying away... anyway, nice to know that we are contributing something to the local ecosystem :)
