Abstract: On the basis of specimen observations, considering the data of SEM leaf epidermal micromophorl-ogy and cytology, a taxonomic revision on Cotoneaster dcanmeri Schneider was carried out. The results show that: 1. The name of C. dammeri var. radicans Schneider should be reduced to a synonym of C. dammeri Schneider. 2. A new subspecies, C. dammeri ssp. songmingensis C. Y. Wu & Lihua Zhou, is described.

Key words: Rosaceae
