Cycas circinalis, also known as the Queen Sago, is a type of cycad that was thought to be linked with the degenerative disease Lytico-Bodig disease on the island of Guam; however, the species native to Guam has since been recognised as a separate species, Cycas micronesica, by K.D. Hill in 1994.
Cycas circinalis is the only gymnosperm species found among native Sri Lankan flora.
