Small-leaved limes Tilia cordata, copyright 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, the limes or linden trees, are large, deciduous trees with heart-shaped leaves. Entelea arborescens, whau, is a small tree with dry, spinose fruit capsules endemic to New Zealand.
