"Encephalartos msinganus ... resembles E. natalensis R.A. Dyer & Verdoorn in its similar male cones and especially its verrucose female cones, but differs in its much narrower pinnae (16-20 versus 25-45 mm). It resembles E. senticosus Vorster vegetatively and in its similar male cones, but differs in the verrucose instead of smooth exposed faces of the megasporophylls" (Vorster 1996).
