apparently there are quite a number of cyathea tree ferns (18!!!) in the blue mountains (according to the book "a guide to plants of the blue mountains of Jamaica")----possibly either c. aspera or c. armata are the spiny stiped ones ones in the picture??? interestingly enough the same book also lists three different hollies (ilex) growing in the area (growing with the tree ferns!!!) as well.
