Macrozamia is a genus of 38-40 species of cycads, in the family Zamiaceae, all endemic to Australia. The majority of the species occur in eastern Australia in southeast Queensland and New South Wales, with one species in the Macdonnell Ranges of Northern Territory and three in southern Western Australia.[1][2] The common name burrawang, originally referring to M. communis in the Daruk Australian Aboriginal language, is often used for all the species in the genus.
