In retaliation, then, Marais's niece, Dr Inez Verdoorn (81), in The Soul of the Waterberg, went and named an early gymnosperm, which her uncle had apparently been the first to discover in 1926 in a stand of ramshackle cycads, Encephalartos
The order Cycadales comprises three families (Cycadaceae, Stangeriaceae and Zamiaceae), and 11 genera (Cycas, Stangeria, Bowenia, Dioon, Encephalartos
, Macrozamia, Lepidozamia, Ceratozamia, Microcycas, Zamia and Chigua) (Stevenson 1992).
This coleorhiza-like cap, originally observed on seedlings of several different Encephalartos
species, were later also observed on seedlings of Ceratozamia hiMae, Cvcas revohtta.
It is found by field edges in Wales, West England and Scotland Encephalartos
altensteinii Found along the Eastern Cape, South Africa, where numbers have declined more than 30% in 50 years Wollemi Pine (Wollemia Nobilis) was found in 1994 in Wollemi National Park, Australia.
The huge Jurassic cycad, Encephalartos

This collection is one of the finest in the world and home to the rarest of cycads, including Encephalartos
