Taxonomy Comments: Wilbur (2002b) and Wilbur & Ho (2008) discussed the reasons for rejecting the traditional use of Q. pumila for this species; Walter's diagnosis stated that Q. pumila has leaves that are glabrous and glaucous below, ruling out application to this species. Ward (2007d) disagreed and defended the traditional usage.
