188. Musa seminifera Lour. subsp. seminifera var. seminifera

Flora Cochinchinensis: 644 (1790).

Musa sapientum L. subsp. seminifera (Lour.) Baker, Annals of Botany (Oxford) 7: 213 (1893); Musa × paradisiaca L. subsp. seminifera (Lour.) K.Schum , in Engler, Das Pflanzenreich IV.45: 22 (1900).

REMARKS

In the diagnosis Loureiro (1793) refers to M.sylvestris Rumph. ( Rumphius 1747) . There is no figure to be connected with Rumphius’ diagnosis, although Loureiro cites also t. 61. That table presents M. simiarum (t. 61 fig. 1), M. uranoscopos (t. 61 fig. 2) and M. alphurica seu ceramica (t. 61 fig. 3). Thus, the name M. seminifera is not supported by an illustration. Since herbarium and types of Rumphius were almost completely destroyed in a fire ( Stafleu & Cowan 1983), the name remains dubious. The usage of the name seminifera has been most confusing. Wu (1991: 393) suggests that M. seminifera is synonymous to M. balbisiana , which is contrary to the principle of priority ( McNeill et al. 2006.
