Abstract

This paper clarifies the typification of three Caucasian species of Pyrus. Lectotypes are designated here for Pyrus georgica, P. demetrii and P. fedorovii described by Schuschana Kuthatheladze from Georgia. A brief explanation of the reasoning behind the choice of specimen is given for each typification.
