Taxonomic notes


"The species differs from others in the genus by the presence of both remarkably long peduncles bearing the megastrobili and microstrobili, and large, arching leaves with numerous, wide leaflets. Its affinity is unresolved at present, but it is likely to be close to C. matudae" (Chemnick et al. 1997).
