REMARKS

We consider that M. rosacea is a good species. It requires pollination to produce seeds. This name antedates the well-known M. balbisiana Colla 1820 , which we consider as synonymous. Musa balbisiana has been generally used, while M. rosacea has been used only occasionally. Maintenance of the name M. balbisiana would require conservation.
