Zamia pumila is found primarily in Florida, the southeastern coast of Georgia, the Greater Antilles, the northern Bahamas (Walters & Decker-Walters, 1991: 436), central Cuba and the Dominican Republic (Stevenson, 2010). In addition, it been discovered in parts of Southern Puerto Rico and Haiti, but due to human land use, the plant has since been wiped out in certain areas of these regions because of habitat loss (Stevenson, 2010).
