Unusual Sago Palm

This Cycas revoluta has unusually split leaflets, making it look plumose. Unfortunately it also had a bad case of Asian Scale recently, so it looks spotted, too, but I hope as the new leaves grow out, that will correct itself.

Looks like it's trying to turn into a pine tree!

I like that look.I have noticed some of my Cycas revolutas fronds do the same thing.I thought it might be from the fertilizer I give them,maybe it's a mutation.Who knows?

Showa form maybe?

No. Showas are just more densely leaved... this one actually has divided leaflets making it look plumose, instead of the usual 'flat' look of the leaves.
