Cycas beddomei Dyer ??


No. Can not be Cycas beddomei Dyer


From another thread:
Cycas beddomei Dyer is unique. Its leaflets are thinnest of all the known species from India. It is endemic to Tirumala hills and Cuddappa.
Plants mentioned by late Prof  B G L Swamy and Prof. D D Pant are totally different. These are tall trees  with dichotomous branching. This species is endemic to Bellur and has been named as Cycas bglswamyii. These two coloured photographs are of Cycas bglswamyii.
Cycas indica Lindstrom & Hill  is based on a single collection of Late Father Saldanha from Nagpuri locality,deposited in E Herbarium and the drawings published by Lindstrom and Hill.


PS.I have tried to clarify these in my recent book on “Living Gymnosperms in India” published from amazon.com
