Distribution: between Fog Bay and Port Darwin, to the southwest of Darwin, Northwest of Northern Territory, Australia.

Distribution: northern Wingate Mountains and adjacent plains country to the north and west, extending to the coast north of Peppimenarti, and west almost to Port Keats, Northern Territory, Australia.
  • Cycas maconochiei subs. viridis K.D.Hill: is distinguished by the relatively broad, glossy green leaflets, becoming glabrous when older, with recurved margins, and the thickly woolly cataphylls (tomentum on leaves not persistent).
