33. Musa schweinfurthii K.Schum. & Warb.  

In Engler, Das Pflanzenreich IV.45: 14 (1900). — Ensete schweinfurthii (K.Schum. & Warb.) Cheesman, Kew   Bulletin 2: 103 (1948). — Type: Sudan, Niamniam, wild in Baginosa, 28.V.1870, Schweinfurth [2. ser. n. 130], (lecto-, BM000911547!, BM00091154!; designated by Lock [1993: 3], “ type ”; iso-, K000099677!, K000099678!; iso-, P00439278!)   .

REMARKS

This is most likely a synonym of E. edule ( Baker & Simmonds 1954)   , i.e. E.ventricosum   . The typification by Baker & Simmonds (1954: 405) is not effective, as they refer to two collections, one at BM and one at K. All lecto- and isotype sheets are cross marked by Schweinfurth’s collection number 130.
