Lithocarpus (family Fagaceae) A genus of trees, related to the oaks (Quercus) and similar in their acorns, bark, and wood with broad rays, but which produce bisexual inflorescences. The timber is used mainly for firewood because it is difficult to work. There are about 300 species, found in the tropics and subtropics from India to Japan and Malesia, plus one species in western N. America.
