Sharing the photos of Cycas circinalis from NBNP Garden, Anaikatti, Coimbatore Dist.,
Real good pictures… I liked the signage too, its design as well as nice painting.
Another set of Cycas circinalis growth rate photos.
“Flora picture of the year 2011” B. Rathinasabapathy: C. circinalis is endemic to South India, where is it restricted to the Western Ghats and hilly regions of the southern peninsula, in the states of Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and the south of Maharashtra (Hill 1995).

This a great shot of the female plant of Cycas circinalis
This may be be endemic as natural, otherwise i have more than 20 plants of C circinalis in my College itself. It is a very popular in our area and nurserymen call this Cycas palm. However its male counterpart is very rare. I have seen only two male plants in Kurukshetra University Botanical Garden.
a new species of Cycas- Cycas swamyi was only recently described as new.. it was so far confused with Cycas circinalis which is found only in the western ghats.. this new species is found around Mysore in Karnataka. Beautiful photo
Thanks sir for your kind word.
Pl. go through the link of male flower for your kind information.
Picture is very nice, but I am very much doubtful that Cycas circinalis is endemic to India. I have doubts even of its occurrence in wild naturally. Cycas rumphii and Cycas beddomei are another options. C. beddomei is endemic to India but towards the eastern side in Andhra Pradesh. Then there is a new species recorded from Karnataka which was often misidentified as Cycas circinalis.
Frankly, I get confused reading this article. May be experts here in the group can conclude what I meant.
Pl. find the attached file contain the article about C. circinalis for kind information.
As per IUCN information C. circinalis is endangered and is restricted to the Western Ghats.
Please check that new species.
It was earlier thought to be circinalis.
May be you can help.
Its a news for me that circinalis is endemic to western ghats?
I am not trying to claim that the id is correct.
…, would you please send me the pdf of C. swamyi publication.
If we confirm the same we may need to write IUCN
I actually shared the pdf on this thread before….
Forwarding pl. pdf of Cycas swamyi.
The id of the species is confirmed by Dr. S. Gopalan, Ret. Scientist from BSI, Coimbatore. As you rightly pointed out I have not heard about C. swamyi and its occurrence from WG.
The attached publication would also be a relevant literature for this thread.

This Plant was photographed at Vadodara, Gujarat.
Bot.name: Cycas circinalis

A view of megasporophyll should help in deciding whether it is C. circinalis or C. rumphii.
Cycas is the type genus and the only genus in the family Cycadaceae.
