After the 2018 Peace treaty between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), many areas have become accessible to botanists.

Here, we provide a description of the species, photographs, distribution map and IUCN Red List assessment. To honor peace in Colombia, this new species is named Astrocaryum pax.
