Editorial Note

The text below is that of Bean (Bean 1981) who discussed this taxon under the name Sorbus mougeotii, that discussion itself taking place beneath his discussion of S. anglica (now Hedlundia anglica). We have created this hybrid article – Bean’s text under the correct modern name, with appropriate synonymy – whilst we await sponsorship to enable a full revision of this genus to be written. We are re-organising the Sorbus sensu lato articles in this way to enable a new revision of Sorbus sensu stricto to commence in 2023, and to bring the nomenclature of this complex group of plants up to date in line with modern treatments.

The taxon discussed below as subsp. austriaca is now Hedlundia austriaca (Beck) Sennikov & Kurtto.

TC, September 2023.

 

S. mougeotii Soy.-Willem. & Godr. – Similar to S. anglica, but a tree up to 60 ft high, with relatively narrower leaves and, in the cultivated form, with more numerous lobes. Fruits usually without lenticels, about 38 in. wide, globular. S. mougeotii was discovered in the Vosges about 1850 by Dr Mougeot the French bryologist and brought into cultivation in the Botanic Garden at Nancy, where it was described in 1858. It is found as far west as the Pyrenees and in the east ranges as far as Austria. In the subsp. austriaca (G. Beck) Hayek, which appears to overlap with the typical state, the leaves are relatively broader than in S. mougeotii and more like those of S. anglica.

Some plants distributed as S. mougeotii are ‘Theophrasta’, q.v. under S. latifolia.

From the Supplement (Vol. V)

S. mougeotii – The specimen at Kew measures 35 × 312 ft (1979).
