Editorial Note

We have published this stub genus article as part of a wider reorganisation of Sorbus sensu lato articles. This work will enable a new revision of Sorbus sensu stricto to commence in 2023 and bring the nomenclature of this complex group of plants up to date in line with modern treatments. We will revise this genus in full when funding becomes available; if you would like to support TSO by sponsoring this genus please contact the editors.

TC, September 2023.

A genus of hybrid origin involving crosses beyween Aria and Chamaemespilus. 5 species distributed across northern and western Europe (Plants of the World Online 2023). Small shrubs. Leaves simple, entire, white tomentose beneath, with 4–8 pairs of lateral veins, margin minutely serrate to doubly serrate. Petals pinkish. Styles 2–3. Fruit medium-sized, reddish, with sparse small lenticels. (Sennikov & Kurtto 2017; Rushforth 2018).

Majovskya commemorates Slovakian botanist Jozef Májovský (1920–2012) who made contributions to the study of Sorbus sensu lato in Slovakia (Sennikov & Kurtto 2017).
