REMARKS

The type was recorded from New Caledonia. Herbarium and types of Carlo Giuseppe Bertero are at FI ( Stafleu & Cowan 1976), but no type specimen exists, as stated already by MacDaniels (1947: 15). MacDaniels (1947: 20) considers that M. fehi is synonymous to M. troglodytarum L. According to Cheesman (1950a: 446) this taxon is a cultivated banana. It seems possible that there are sexually inbreeding populations as well as parthenogenesis cultivars of M. fehi . The interpretation of true M. fehi still awaits clarification.
