Cycad: Queen Sago Palm Cycas circinalis

FAMILY: CYCADACEAE (Cycad Family)

The queen sago palm Cycas circinalis is quite widespread in Asia, from India through the South Pacific Islands, because its seeds float. First described in 1658, it was one of the first cycads chronicled in botanical literature.
