yes, but he MIGHT have got it (WHATEVER "it" is) somewhere else---even if the guy indeed got most of his plants from source you mentioned. have you asked him directly about this plant? if not, then I suggest you go over and chat him up--most plant people love to talk about their babies, often because so few other people seem interested!!!!
the thing is (IMHO) is that many of the trachycarpus palms look fairly similar at first glance AND may hybridize both in the wild and in cultivation which is one reason why the genus is still not completely understood.
