82. Musa erecta N.W.Simmonds

Kew Bulletin 8: 571 (1954, “1953”). — Type: Trinidad ,

ICTA no. 200, Anonymous (lecto-, K!, here designated;

epi-, a photograph sheet at K!, here designated).

Musa maclayi F.Muell. ex Mikl. -Maclay subsp. maclayi var. erecta (N.W.Simmonds) Argent (1976: 97) .

REMARKS

The seeds were received from Buka Island, Bougainville in the Solomon Islands. Argent (1976: 97) indicated that the type was collected here. In total three seed sets (200, 201, 203) were received in 1938 ( Simmonds 1953). The first two survived, of which no. 200 is preserved in a liquid collection according to Argent (1976). The lectotype label does not reveal which one of the collections is in question. The description is supported by good photographs on one sheet, which is selected here as an epitype to remove any potential ambiguity.
