Ceratozamia euryphyllidia

Ceratozamia euryphyllidia is regarded as the holy grail of cycad collecting for people with a potted collection for several good reasons.   Plants or seeds have never been collected to introduce to horticulture with very few exceptions.  Those few that have been put into cultivation have been kept private.  The original population was discovered in Veracruz, Mexico by Mario Vazquez Torres, but a foreign collector extirpated every plant.  The population was destroyed by greed.   Luckily, a second population was found just inside the state of Oaxaca.  This second population is larger however a new road has been cut straight through the population and many plants have been destroyed.
