Another one from another place.

It may be Cycas pectinata.

Thank you …, but it appears to me that it does not look like the plants in other posts in eFI page – /species/a—l/cl/cycadaceae/cycas/cycas-pectinata.

Instead, megasporophyll looks somewhat similar to http://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/cycadpg?taxname=Cycas+litoralis which falls under C. rumphii complex.

Cycas‎- some‎ species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)

Cycas pectinata, rumphii, circinalis …. to me all look the same in vegetative…. May be we should contact a Cycas expert.

Please also remember that A.J.C.Bose Indian Botanic Gardens have many exotic species too.
