Cold Re: Unknown Seeded Banana Presented for ID

I dug this up from The Musaceae website regarding M. sikkimensis:

Simmonds also noted specimens from Assam, Sikkim and Manipur, and possibly varietally distinct differences between them, and thought it possible that the species "ranges widely over the higher ground between Tibet and Burma".
Simmonds, 1956.
It is indeed a variable species, as Simmonds said, and these different areas that sikkimensis grows could have been isolated from each other for long enough to make this come about. The Himalayas are such an interesting area of the world!
