11. Musa davyae Stapf ( Fig. 1 View FIG )

Bulletin of Miscellaneous Information 3: 103 (1913). —

Ensete davyae (Stapf) Cheesman, Kew Bulletin 2: 104 (1948). — Type: Mozambique, Amatongas forest, 27.XI.1907, W. H. Johnson s.n. (lecto-, K!, here designated). — Paralectotypes: Transvaal, Zoutpansberg District , Westphalia, 60 miles N of Pietersburg, 1911, Mr. W. C . Worsdell s.n. ( K [seeds]); drawings by Mr. Burtt Davy of inflorescence, flowers and fruits, 1906; Transvaal, Zoutpansberg District , N of Albasini, Spelenken mountains near Elim, 1905, Mr. H . Mingard s.n. ( K000309030 !) .

REMARKS

The lectotype consists of three sheets, which have been cross labelled as sheet i, ii and iii, respectively. Baker & Simmonds (1954: 406) failed in their typification, as they designated two types of different origin. Ensete davyae has been treated as E. edule ( Baker & Simmonds 1954) , i.e. E. ventricosum . However, E.davyae has features in flower structures and in fruit shape, which indicate that further studies are required.
