Full Name: - Quercus mespilifolioides

Quercus mespilifolioides A. Camus (1935)
Infrageneric Classification
Subgenus Cyclobalanopsis
Nomenclature Note
Proposed as a replacement name (nomen novum) for Q. mespilifolia Wall. ex A. DC. (1864) nom. illegit., non Wallr. (1822).

Treated as a synonym of Q. kerrii Craib (1911) by the World Checklist and Bibliography of Fagales (1998) and in earlier editions of this database, but here now accepted as a species following Simon Gardner, Pindar Sidisunthorn and Vilaiwan Anusarnsunthorn in their Field Guide to Forest Trees of Northern Thailand page 363 (2000) which demonstrates clear differences between the two taxa.
