27. Musa banksii F.Muell. var. banksii

Fragmenta Phytographiae Australiae 4: 132 (1864) . — Type: Australia, Queensland, Mt. Elliot , Elliot Fitzalan, (lecto-, MEL 621531!, designated by Simmonds [1957: 464] “ type ”; iso-, BRI).

Musa acuminata Colla subsp. banksii (F.Muell.) N.W. Simmonds (1957: 463) .

REMARKS

There are eight type sheets at MEL, all cross-labelled. Argent (1976) considered that it is “premature to assume a cline linking M. banksii with [Malaysian] forms of M. acuminata ” and treated it as a species, supported by Shepherd (1990: 158) and Simmonds & Weatherup (1990), which is agreed here. Hotta (1989) considers that M. banksii is synonymous with M. acuminata .
