  • Abstract : The wild bananas of Papua New Guinea, as represented by the genera Ensete and Musa are described and illustrated and their inter-relationship discussed. Keys are provided for the identification of all taxa and the distributions given of all species (including a considerable extension in the range of M. lolodensis, from Halmahera in the Moluccas). Musa bukensis Agrgent and M. boman are recorded for the first time and M. angustigemma is reduced to a subspecies of M. peekelii. (Author's abstract).
