Cotoneaster microphyllus Wall. ex Lindl.  ??

After discussions of Cotoneaster spp. on efloraofindia, it has become quite confusing for me, until I get literature on Cotoneaster.

Difficult indeed for 2/3 sp. !

To me appears more closer to images at Cotoneaster marginatus (Lindl. ex Loudon) Schltdl. compared to those at Cotoneaster microphyllus Wall. ex Lindl.

But will be some other species as fruit shape is not matching.

C. microphyllus seems good looking at leaf size and fruit, C. marginatus has larger leaves.
