Type Remarks


Makino intended to publish Cydonia japonica var. lagenaria (Loisel.) Makino and base it on C. lagenaria Loisel. (superfluous & illegitimate name for Pyrus japonica Thunb.) Makino, however, excluded P. japonica from his var. lagenaria, cited several synonyms at the rank of species, and thus inadvertently published C. japonica var. lagenaria as a new varietal name.
