in a pasture near a marsh. Leaf forms typical of many of these found on trees at Tinley Creek in Cook Co., Ill. also S. Ill. trees. Leaves (thin) lack trichomes characteristic of Q. velutina. Buds classic examples of Q. coccinea. Fruit has diagnostic concentric arc on stglar end. [Acorn cap scales +/- flat; inner surface of the cap moderately kinky-pubescent; stylar end of the nut with one ring of pits, about 3.5 mm diam. These are all Q. ellipsoidalis characters. Overlease's comments on this specimen may be valid -pubescence on the acorn cap and leaf morphology suggest introgression of Q. velutina into Q. ellipsoidalis or vice versa - but we have looked at numerous specimens with similar camps of characters that show no molecular signature of admixture - A.L. Hipp, 2008]
