Family: Fagaceae

Genus: Quercus

Description: 

The Quercus grandifolia is a native of the woods of Nepal, where it has been discovered by the collectors sent out by Dr. Wallich, to whom I am indebted for the fine branch represented in the plate. Dr. Hamilton does not appear to have met with it. We are already acquainted with ten species of Nepalese Oaks, besides the one here figured. Several of these, in point of beauty, far surpass those either of Europe or America. (Desc. Pinus)

History: 

Published in Descr. Pinus v.2 t.8 p.27 in 1824.

Synonym of Lithocarpus elegans (Blume) Hatus. ex Soepadmo.
