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.

TC, August 2023.

Differentiated from related genera by small fruits (4–7 mm across) without lenticels, with two co-lateral ovules in the two carpels. Leaves generally craspedodromus except in M. cuspidata (camptodromus). (Rushforth 2018).
