REMARKS

There are two type sheets at K collected in the type locality, viz. Sumatra ( Beccari1880). In the diagnosis the year of collection is given as 1877. However, such a specimen could not be located. The lectotype sheets are cross labelled with a marking “Be 11/79”, one consisting of fruits (000292216) and the other one of a leaf (000292218). In the first mentioned the label is lacking, but it bears the cross marking “Be 11/79, Musa sumatrana Becc. .

The illustration ( Beccari 1880) shows a non-flowering plant.He refers to “ M. sumatrana Becc., Catal. Hort.Florentini Corsi , no. 2,p. 4”.In that publication there is the name only. In his Nelle Foreste di Borneo, Beccari (1902) refers to “ M. sumatrana Becc. ”. The varietal rank ( Nasution 1991) is appropriate.
