Encephalartos eugene-maraisii

Geelhoutkloof, Aug 2017

Endemic to the eastern Waterberg and red-listed (ranked as endangered) on account of severe over-collecting of plants in the wild. An aerial survey in 2004 located 875 mature plants across its range. It was described in 1945 by botanist Inez Verdoorn and she named it after Eugene Marais who was her uncle.
