147. Musa paradisiaca   L. var. paradisiaca

REMARKS

Musa paradisiaca   is also the type species of Musa   L. (designated by Adanson [1763]: 525, 580). This name was extensively discussed by Cheesman (1948b: 146) who, however, did not explicitly refer to any of the plates as type. Ghazanfar (1982) indicated “1207.1 (LINN)” as type but this was a post-1753 addition to the herbarium and not original material for the name ( Jarvis 2007).
