I just came across this and I wanted to share it. Please forgive me if it's already posted. It's a list from the link at the bottom of peanut/tree nuts and their botanical names.

Hazelnut (Corylus americana)
Pecan (Carya illinoensis)
Peanut (Arachis hypogea)
Macadamia Nut (Macadamia integrifolia)
Almond (Prunus amygdalus)
Brazil Nut (Bertholletia excelsa)
Chestnut (Castanea dentata)
Kukui Nut (Aleurites molucanna)
Water Caltrop (Trapa bicornis)
Walnut and English Walnut (Juglans regia)
Date palm nuts (Phoenix dactylifera)
Pistachio nuts (Pistacia vera)
Chinese pistache (P. chinensis)
mango (Mangifera indica)
Gum mastic or "Chios Tears," raw resin globules from the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus)
pinyon pines (Pinus monophylla & P. edulis)
cashew nut (Anacardium occidentale)
ivory-nut palm (Phytelephas aequatorialis)
Kluwak nuts come from the kepayang tree (Pangium edule)
chestnut (Castanea dentata)
Acorn - cork oak (Quercus suber)
American beech (Fagus grandifolia)
buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum)
coconut (Cocos nucifera)
California black walnut (Juglans californica)
European horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum)


I hope this is helpful info. it's something I looked for before and had to settle for just the peanut one as no one had a full list of them all together. I think I copied and pasted them all. Forgive me if not. Check out the link!
