Nomenclature Notes
A variety is a recognised division of a species in botany, next below the rank of subspecies.  Variety is used for lower degrees of difference than subspecies, e.g. Pinus nigra subsp. nigra var. nigra - Austrian pine (in the case of the Type variety).

A domesticated variety of a plant - a cultivated variety - is called a cultivar.  A cultivar is indicated with a cv. and by putting the name between single quotes, not in italics, and capitalised, e.g. Aeonium arboreum cv. 'Atropurpureum'.
