A taxonomic revision of the genera Cycas and Epicycas gen. nov. (Cycadaceae)
The genus Cycas L is divided into four subgenera, all new, and thirty species are described, of which two are new. A new Asian genus, Epicycas de Laub., is recognized for several Cycas species and one undescribed species with a subterranean bulbous stem base. Keys to the subgenera of Cycas and their species, and to the genus Epicycas are given.
