Two varieties of this species is represented in Iran, Crataegusmonogyna var. monogyna from northwest and Crataegusmonogyna var. lasiocarpa from Hyrcanian region. In this survey 10 populations of C. monogyna have been studied using RAPD marker for classification of taxonomic relationship. Clustering analysis of RAPD data showed that a population is very differ from others and so It has long shoot thorn (about 4 cm cv. Type species with up to 2.5 cm) .
