Pteroceltis (Greek, pteron, wing; referring to the winged fr. and the close affinity of the tree to Celtis). Ulmaceae. A deciduous tree from N. W. and Cent. China, in foliage and habit very much like Celtis, but with a winged fr., resembling a small elm fr. Cult, and prop, like Celtis; probably hardy as far north as Mass. The only species is P. Tatarinowii, Maxim. Tree, to 50 ft.: branchlets glabrous: lvs. ovate to ovate-oblong, acuminate, broadly cuneate at the base, irregularly and sharply serrate, 3-nerved at the base, glabrous, 1 1/2- 3 1/2 in. long: fr. axillary, solitary, slender-stalked, sub- orbicular, often broader than high and the wing usually emarginate at the apex.—Rare in cult, and without particular ornamental qualities. Alfred Rehder.
