Full Name: - Quercus aurea

Quercus aurea Wierzb. Exsicc. (Wierzbicki) 1835: s.n. (1835)
Infrageneric Classification
Subgenus Quercus, Section Quercus
Nomenclature Note
This is considered the accepted name for Q. dalechampii auct. Di Pietro et al. (2012) solved the problem of an inconsistent application of the name Q. dalechampii Ten. by designating a lectotype which explicitly belongs to the Q. pubescens Willd. group. The name Q. dalechampii Ten. is therefore no longer applicable to the Central European populations it was used to designate.
Natural Distribution
