REMARKS

Wu & Kress (2000) considered Musa dechangensis   as synonymous with M. balbisiana   stating that “ M. dechangensis   is indistinguishable from M. balbisiana   in almost all aspects of bracts, fruit, and seeds. The slight differences given by the authors can be observed within M. balbisiana   and, therefore, do not support the recognition of this variant as an independent species”. Most recently, Liu et al. (2002) studied more herbarium material of M. dechangensis   and considered it to be identical with M. basjoo   , and that Wu’s analysis is flawed. The correct status of M. dechangensis   needs to be re-evaluated.
