Quercus lancifolia is a species of oak found in Central America.[1][2] It has a disjunct (discontinuous) distribution in Mexico, having been found only in two states: Veracruz in eastern Mexico and Jalisco in western Mexico.[2][3]

Q. lancifolia is a large forest tree up to 30 meters tall with a trunk 100 cm or more in diameter. The leaves are up to 22 cm long, sometimes with no lobes or teeth but sometimes with undulations or sharp teeth, green on the top, whitish and waxy on the underside.[2]
