Of conservation concern.
Variety dumetosa is recorded only from Neck City, Jasper County in Missouri. Crataegus invisa Sargent from Arkansas and Oklahoma, which is intermediate with var. mollis, may have some leaves without lobes but most are usually shallowly incised and larger than in var. dumetosa.
"pubescent" is not a number.
