REMARKS

There are two type sheets at MEL, both bear a cross marking Musa N. 2 by Fitzalan. According

to Simmonds (1957) and Ross (1987) this name is synonymous to M. banksii [ var. banksii ]. Ross (1987) designated as a lectotype the same element (MEL 621528!, 621529!). Simmonds (1957: 464) commented the name as a worthless variety.
