T he purpose of this publication is to serve as a practical, easy-to-use guide for the identification of indigenous cycad species (Encephalartos species). The guide was developed with the layman in mind for practical use in the field or garden. It is not intended as a scientific taxonomic publication on the indigenous cycad species. E.brevifoliolatus is not covered in the book. Although the distribution of E.umbeliziensis is in Swaziland, it is mentioned in the key because it does occur in gardens and may be confused with E.villosus.
