Another rare Mexican cycad that was once considered a variety of Ceratozamia mexicana... not sure of exactly how this one differs, but have never grown this plant... Only seen one. Common name for this plant is the Redback Cycad.

aka Ceratozamia 'Red Back' (for rather obvious reasons- new leaves are strikingly red-brown and retain this coloration for some time)
