The Field Elm cultivar Ulmus minor 'Albo-Dentata' first featured in the Baudriller (Angers, France) nursery catalogue of 1880 as U. microphylla foliis albo-dentata.

Baudriller described the tree simply as a small-leafed elm with silver teeth. It was later described as a small tree, the leaves with white margins and spots.[1]
