Encephalartos venetus (Zamiaceae): A new species from the Northern Province

Vorster P. (1996)

Article

Encephalartos venetus is described from the Northern Province. It resembles E. cupidus R.A. Dyer in its glaucous foliage, strongly dentate sub-adult-stage leaflets, glaucous green cones, and the morphology of the micro- and mega-sporophylls, but differs in being a much larger and arborescent, instead of a more or less acaulescent plant, with entire instead of conspicuously dentate adult-stage leaflets.
