Distribution & Habitat:

Low-lying Panamanian rainforest.


Very attractive small cycad to about 0.5m tall, and leaves to about 1.0m long. The leaflets have a hard, almost plastic like feel, and are dark green, corrugated, and finely toothed.


Very similar to a small version of Zamia_skinneri.


Warm, sheltered, and moist. Doesn't like wet feet at all.
