Female cones single or in groups of 2 or more, ovoid to subglobose, usually 2.5–4 cm diam. when open, persistent; scales thick, permanently adhering toward base, dorsal surface finely to coarsely rugose, frequently with tubercles, with very small dorsal point near apex; columella not lobed, usually short and thick.
