Whereas the ‘hybrids’ treated under + Crataegomespilus are graft-chimaeras between species of Crataegus and Mespilus, the plants described here are of quite different origin and botanical standing, being normal sexual hybrids between the two genera. It has long been the practice to make the name Crataegomespilus do duty for both sorts of union, but modern rules of nomenclature demand, very reasonably, that they should be treated separately.
