"Encephalartos venetus ... resembles E. cupidus R.A. Dyer in its glaucous foliage, strongly dentate sub-adult-stage leaflets, glaucous green cones, and the morphology of the micro- and megasporophylls, but differs in being a much larger and arborescent, instead of a more or less acaulescent plant, with entire instead of conspicuously dentate adult-stage leaflets" (Vorster 1996).
