A brief, updated account on the taxonomic history of Cuban palms is provided, together with a key for the field identification of the 14 currently recognized native genera. Four of the most interesting genera of Cuban native palms (Thrinax, Coccothrinax, Copernicia and Roystonea) are commented. The name Coccothrinax crinita is lectotypified.
