Hesperomeles is a genus of South American evergreen trees of the family Rosaceae that has sometimes been included along with Pyracantha in the genus Osteomeles. However, Osteomeles notably have compound leaves, and recent molecular phylogenetics suggests that Hesperomeles is only distantly related to Osteomeles, and is instead sister to the Crataegus—Mespilus clade. © Wikipedia authors and editors (licence)See more in the Encyclopedia of Life...
