Pyrus elaeagrifolia, Pall. (P. nnivalis var. elaeagrifolia, Schneid.). Small spiny tree, the young shoots tomentose: lvs. lanceolate to oblong or obovate-lanceolate, entire, usually silky-tomentose, the base mostly tapering and the apex obtuse- mucronate or short-acuminate: fls. small, on densely tomentose pedicels: fr. globose-turbinate, glabrous, the calyx persistent. Caucasus, S. Russia. The specific name was first written, by Pallas, elaeagrifolia (not elseagnifolia), because he considered elaeagrus to be the proper spelling of the name of the oleaster genus, it having been spelled that way by Dioscorides. Var. Kotschyana, Boiss. (P. Kotschyana, Boiss. P.nivalis var. Kotschyana,Schneid.), is usually spineless, the lvs. larger (3 in. long), the fr. globose and larger (about 1 in. diam.).
