Unfortunately, the two shots I took of close-ups of the fruit of this were both out-of-focus.
Comments for inclusion with the images attached below:  
Cotoneaster schubertii  G.Klotz – the type specimen is from the Kashmir Valley; the type specimen is in the Luther University at Halle-Wittenberg, Germany.
Stewart (1972) was not aware of this species.
It was previously known only from Pakistan & Kashmir.
These images were taken at Udaipur, Lahoul, Himachal Pradesh at some 2700m in October.

As per latest treatments, Cotoneaster nummularius Fisch. & C. A. Meyer is not found in India.

Thanks a lot for pointing out the misidentification of the species. Tabish sir, could you please modify the species name accordingly on FOI ?
