Acrocomia media is a pinnately leaved palm with a solitary, stout stem. It usually reaches a height of 8 to 10 metres (26 to 33 ft), sometimes growing up to 15 metres (49 ft) tall, with a stem diameter of 20 to 30 centimetres (7.9 to 11.8 in).
American botanist George Proctor considered A. media to be a valid species on the basis of its shorter, more slender trunk, but other authors considered it a synonym of A. aculeata.
Acrocomia media is commonly known as coroso or palma de coroso in Puerto Rico.
