23. Musa laurentii De Wild.  

Mission Émile Laurent 1: 371 (1907). — Ensete laurentii (De Wild.) Cheesman, Kew   Bulletin 2: 103 (1948). — Type: Congo (Democratic Republic of Congo), Stanleyville (Kisangani), 15.I.1904, E. & M. Laurent s.n. (lecto-, BR000000880768!, designated by Baker & Simmonds [1954: 406], “type”. — Paralectotype: Democratic Republic of Congo, Kinshasa, cultivé à Isangi, 16.VII.1905, L. Pynaert 89, not found.  

REMARKS

In the diagnosis, the type is indicated to be a cultivated specimen: “Stanleyville, 15 janvier 1904 (Ém. et M. Laurent); cultivé”. There are three more sheets (BR000000880874!, BR000000880875!, 000000880876!), which likely represent the same collection as the lectotype, but are not cross-marked and lack the collection date. This is a synonym of E. edule ( Baker & Simmonds 1954)   , i.e. E. ventricosum   .
