Hesperomeles is a genus of South American evergreen trees of the family Rosaceae that has sometimes been included along with Pyracantha in the genus Osteomeles.[1] However, Osteomeles notably have compound leaves, and recent molecular phylogenetics suggests that Hesperomeles is only distantly related to Osteomeles, and is instead sister to the Crataegus—Mespilus clade.[2]

Depending on the author, there are between 12[3] and 20 species in the genus.[4] According to Tropicos.org database, the following species are recognized:[3]

Hesperomeles cordata
Hesperomeles ferruginea
Hesperomeles gayana
Hesperomeles goudotiana
Hesperomeles incerta
Hesperomeles nitida
Hesperomeles obtusifolia
Hesperomeles pachyphylla
Hesperomeles palcensis
Hesperomeles personii
Hesperomeles resinopunctata
Hesperomeles weberbaueri
