- Flower and fruit specimens with leaves of 70 specimens were sampled to investigate patterns of interspecific variation and to evaluate recognition of Berberis amurensis and B. koreana taxa using nine leaf and fruit characters. This study suggested that leaf characters (length and width) were no longer useful for identification, but leaf serration pattern and fruit shapes were useful to tell B. amurensis from B. koreana. Our data showed that B. amurensis was mainly distributed in eastern Korea (Province Gangwon-do). However, B. koreana was predominantly distributed in western area, Province Gyeonggi-do.
