Burretiodendron is a genus of trees. Traditionally included in the family Tiliaceae, it is included in the expanded Malvaceae in the APG and most subsequent systematics. It contains some species formerly in the (not too closely related) Pentace. Thus, Parapentace may be a synonym of Burretiodendron rather than Pentace.

These are deciduous or semi-evergreen trees with heart-shaped leaves and winged capsules.

This genus is native to and distributed in Asia.

  • Burretiodendron brilletii
