Tiliaceae

Small-leaved lime Tilia cordata, photographed by Waugsberg.


Belongs within: Malvaceae.

The Tiliaceae or Tilioideae has been used by past authors in a broader sense than its current circumscription, but most recent authors would restrict this name to a group of trees and shrubs from northern temperate regions and Central America. Species of the genus Tilia are the limes or linden trees.
