   This member of the Cycadaceae family was given this name by David John de Laubenfels in 1998. It is found in Central Vietnam and Eastern Laos, growing in peat or a well drained soil with some to lots of water and little to some sun. The caudex will slowly evolve to a 30 centimetre, with a 15 centimetre  thick and 60 centimetre high stem. The leaves grow to 2,4 meters. Both the male and the female cones are yellow, and besides seeds it can be reproduced by offsets.  

Named after W Micholitz (1854-1932), who made the type collections.
