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

Vorster P. (1996)


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.
