 Comments
       
  Comment: See comments by Nixon (1997) for a discussion of the 'uncertainty regarding the identify of the Linnean type materials' and the conclusion that 'the names Q. montana and Q. michauxii should be used for the two species that have been variously called Q. prinus. Quercus prinus under this interpretation is a name of uncertain position'
