Ensete Horan.  

Prodromus Monographiae Scitaminearum   : 40 (1862). — Type: Ensete edule Horan.   (lecto-, designated by Simmonds 1954).


Ensete edule   is the only species mentioned in the designation of this genus ( Horaninow 1862). Ensete edule   is synonymous to E. ventricosum (Welw.) Cheesman   , described as Musa ventricosa   by Welwitsch (1859). However, E. edule   is generitype of Ensete   ( McNeill et al. 2006: Art. 10.1).
