The genus Bowenia, includes two living and two species of cycads in the family Stangeriaceae, and is entirely restricted to Australia.

Ceratozamia is a genus of New World cycads in the family Zamiaceae. The genus contains 26 currently living species and one or two fossil species. Most species are endemic to mountainous areas of Mexico, while few species extend into the mountains of Guatemala, Honduras and Belize. [more]
Chigua is a genus of cycads in the family Zamiaceae containing two species, endemic to small areas in northwestern Colombia. Described by botanist Dennis Stevenson in 1990, it is the most recently named genus. Both species are listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN Red List. The genus name comes from a Spanish transliteration of the common name given to cycads by the indigenous peoples of Colombia. The species are found in wet lowland rainforests at 100-200 m altitude.
