Lectotypification of Crataegus coccinea L. and its conspecificity with C. pedicellata Sarg. (Rosaceae)
Abstract:Crataegus coccinea L., a name with an erratic history of usage but which has given its name to an important subdivision of the genus, C. ser. (or sect.) Coccineae, is lectotypified. It is held to be identical to the well-known North American species C. pedicellata Sarg., which it can now safely displace.
