Dypsis carlsmithii (Stumpy Palm) is a species of flowering plant in the Arecaceae family, endemic to the Madagascarian rainforests. It is a rare palm, with fewer than 15 mature individuals identified from two locations in the northeast: Tampolo on the western coast of Masoala Peninsula, and Mahavelona, north of Toamasina. Its trunk grows to 6 m tall and about 40–50 cm in diameter, with mature leaves about 140 cm long by about 80 cm wide.
