168. Musa rubra Kurz

Journal of Agricultural and Horticultural Society of India 14: 301 (1867). — Type: [ Myanmar], Burma, Rangoon, M. Clelland (lecto-, K!, here designated) .

REMARKS

The lectotype has probably been collected by Clelland in Myanmar.He served in the Bengal Medical Service in 1830-1865. This specimen was incorporated to K herbarium in 1867, in the same year Kurz made the diagnosis. He perhaps received it via Wallich, to whom Kurz gave the credit of description ( Kurz 1867:301). Although Kurz gave Wallich as the author, Kurz made the diagnosis himself ( Cheesman 1949b), therefore it should be credited to Kurz alone.
