Editorial Note

The text below is that of Bean (Bean 1981) who discussed this taxon under the name Sorbus pseudofennica beneath his article on S. hybrida (now Hedlundia hybrida). 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.

TC, September 2023.

S. pseudofennica E. F. Warburg – Very similar to S. hybrida but a smaller tree with shorter leaves, yellowish green above, rather thinly tomentose beneath, and with smaller flowers and fruits. It is known only from Glen Catacol in the Isle of Arran, Scotland, and is thought to be the result of hybridisation between the triploid S. arranensis (q.v. under S. minima) and S. aucuparia. It was described in 1957.
