Encephalartos kanga sp. nov. is described from Mount Kanga, an isolated hill of the Nguru Mountains within the crystalline, Precambrian Eastern Arc Mountains of Tanzania. The new species is distinguished by its spinose distal leaflet-shoulders with otherwise entire median leaflet margins and by the sharply tuberculate-dentate proximal side of the seminal ridge of the female cone scales.
