Published in: Madroño 30(1): 39-42. 1983. (Madroño View Publication info in IPNI View Publication info  in Tropicos)

This name is considered a Synonym of Ceratozamia latifolia Miq.

Type notes:
Stevenson & Sabato (1986, in Taxon 35(3): 580) cited J. Rees 1681 (XAL) as the holotype, but this is actually a paratype. The holotype collection as cited in the protologue is J. Rees 1613 (XAL).

Synonymy notes: Synonymy with C. latifolia based on Martínez-Domínguez et al. 2018 in Phytokeys 100: 109. The following explanation provided by the authors: 'This decision stems from the typification by Stevenson and Sabato (1986), where a neotype specimen geographically located in San Luis Potosí was designated to validate the binomial. In addition, we consider that C. microstrobila is part of C. latifolia, due to the absence of morphological and molecular evidence to recognise the former as a distinct species.'
