184. Musa sapientum L. var. sanguinea Baker

Annals of Botany (Oxford) 7: 212 (1893).

REMARKS

Herbarium and types of Baker are at K and WELT ( Stafleu & Cowan 1976), but could not be found. No original material was found, and there is no type information ( Baker 1893). Baker refers to Wallich. However, such a description appears not to exist. The inadequate diagnosis clearly refers to a cultivated edible banana “leaves and fruit strongly tinged with blood-red”. This name has not been used by botanists.
