A rectangular graphene dot with two zigzag edges and two armchair edges have electronic states in the presence of a magnetic field that are localized on the zigzag edges with non zero values of the wavefunction inside the dot. We have investigated the dependence of these wavefunctions on the size of the dot, and explain the physical origin of them in terms of surface and the lowest Landau level (LLL) states of infinitely long nanoribbons. We find that the armchair edges play a crucial role by coupling the surface and LLL states.
