Macrofossils of Carpinus have been widely reported from the Cenozoic of the Northern Hemisphere. However, the leaf cuticules of the genus have rarely been described. A new species, named Carpinustengchongensis Dai et B.N. Sun, sp. nov., is identified based on 13 leaf fossils, collected from the late Pliocene Mangbang Formation, Tengchong County of Yunnan Province, China. The important characters of the fossil are its oblong-ovate leaf shape, obliquely cordate base, doubly serrulate margin…

CUTICULAR STRUCTURE OF TWO ANGIOSPERM FOSSILS IN NEOGENE FROM TENGCHONG,YUNNAN PROVINCE AND ITS PALAEOENVIRONMENTAL SIGNIFICANCE
TLDR
The stomatal parameter of C.subcordata is got which indicates that atmospheric CO 2 concentration in Neogene was higher than that of today, and the Neogene climate in western Yunnan was warm and humid, belonging to tropical zone to subtropical zone or warm temperate zone.
Corylus, Carpinus, and Palaeocarpinus (Betulaceae) from the Middle Eocene Klondike Mountain and Allenby Formations of Northwestern North America
TLDR
The presence in the Okanogan Highlands floras of a suite of coryloid plants including both extinct and extant genera demonstrates that, like the birch subfamily Betuloideae, the subfamily Coryloideae was also a significant and diverse group in western North America during the middle Eocene.

TLDR
The phylogenetic results indicate a generalized biogeographic track between southeastern Europe and eastern Asia and one clade of Ostrya in the ITS tree, although discordance is found in the morphological data concerning this biogeographical relationship.
