A. Camus : n° 351;
-- Sub-genus Quercus, section Lobatae;
-- For today's Mexican Authors (Susana Valencia-A., 2004), this species described by Martens & Galeotti is not currently valid ; it may be a hybrid, or a morpholigical variety...For Zavala-Chavez, 2003, it is a variety of Q.laurina.
However, in 2012, Susana Valencia-A. has categorically identified this taxon, after having studied a specimen collected by Francisco Garin (managing director at the Botanical Garden of Iturraran, Spain).
