250. Musa japonica C.Thiébaut & J.B.Keteleer

Revue horticole 60: 491 (1889).

REMARKS

The diagnosis is poor: “les bourgeons, gros et robustes, forment des tiges courtes et grosses munies de feuilles relativement large”, meaning “the thick and hardy buds develop in short and stout twigs provided with rather broad leaves”, otherwise the text only treats the horticultural properties, and should be treated as nomen invalid according to the Code ( McNeill et al. 2006: Art. 32.3). There is no native banana in Japan, and it is suspected that the description refers to M. basjoo ( Watson 1890; Argent 1984; Huxley et al. 1992).
