Crataegus monogyna, belongs to Rosaceae family and known as common hawthorn or single-seeded hawthorn. Crataegus monogyna is often divided into several infraspecefic taxa and or two or more species. Two varieties of this species is represented in Iran, Crataegus monogyna var. monogyna from northwest and Crataegus monogyna 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) . It is reported as a new variety “ Crataegus monogyna var. mazandaranica “for the first time from Ira
