poncirsguy:
I have sur orange and it has much bigger leaves

Melenduwir:
My experience with sour orange is limited to the single seedling I have.  Although I must say it rather resembles the rootstock in question, at least so far.

I am inclined towards the opinion that it's an alemow, now.

Perhaps comparing to the images at http://citruspages.free.fr/trifoliates.php would be helpful?  (It's about rootstocks, not just trifoliata.)

Galatians522:
Cleopatra (Cleo for short) tangerine would be my guess. Cleo, sour orange and lemons are the common monofloiate rootstocks that I am familiar with. Lemon leaves have a slightly scalloped margin, and sour orange has more of a wing on the petiole. Cleo has small leaves. So that seems to fit with your picture. I supose there are plenty of other things it could be including a couple other tangerine types, but Cleo would seem to be the most common option.

pagnr:
Cleopatra has small pointed leaves, like most of the small fruited seedy mandarin species.

Good point, the leaf tip does look rounded.
