Cotoneaster …???

Cotoneaster species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)

To me appears close to images at Cotoneaster encavei J.Fryer & B.Hylmö

Did not find listing in Nepal.

Lot must have changed since J. Fryer’s book.
