Back to my old faithful stand-by ... a "What is It?"

The photo is of the seed cone of a zamia palm. As the zamia is a member of the cyad family, I paid a point for cyad.
The zamia grows naturally in WA but not in other states, therefore it would have been difficult for our Eastern States participants to recognise it.
Flin identified it as a cycad and, when asked for further information, gave me sago palm which is very similar indeed to a zamia. I therefore gave him the extra point.
Alicia, being a resident of WA, scored 2 points having given both cycad and zamia.
