status

 

128. Musa maclayi F.Muell. subsp. maclayi var. maclayi  

in Miklouho-Maclay, Proceedings of the Linnean Society of New South Wales 10: 348 (1885). — Type: Papua New Guinea, Morobe, Maclay coast (lecto-, MEL 588788!, designated by Argent [1976: 93])   .

REMARKS

The diagnosis was very brief: “Compared to cultivated varieties [ M. paradisiaca   ], with a tall stem (nearly twice as tall), with narrow stiff leaves and small (not edible) fruits full of seeds.” In the case of M. calosperma   in the same article (Miklouho- Maclay 1885) this preliminary diagnosis is even more evident: “ Musa calosperma   is as yet only temporarily named.”
