13. Musa elephantorum  

K.Schum. & Warb., in Engler

Das Pflanzenreich IV, 45: 14 (1900). — Ensete elephantorum (K.Schum. & Warb.) Cheesman, Kew   Bulletin 2: 102 (1948). — Type: B, destroyed   .

REMARKS

The type specimen was collected at “Kameuron, Yaunde Station, Berg Boukollo im Grasfelde an Abhängen (Zenker)”. The description is poor, and the type in B has been destroyed, so the identification is not possible ( Baker & Simmonds 1954), which is agreed here   .
