In the article, Hakkinen does mention conserving the name Musa velutina, for just this reason: It's been around for over 100 years! This is much different than the recent confusion with Musa yunnanensis/itinerans, especially since M. yunnanensis had not yet been described when people were selling seeds of it, labeled as itinerans. M. velutina is one of the most common ornamentals, I'd venture to guess that it's probably THE most popular ornamental banana there is. If one were to label plants for display, say in a botanical garden or even in a home garden, you might give Musa dasycarpa big letters, and then say that M. velutina is a synonym. Personally, I don't think M. dasycarpa will EVER catch on, and that's just how it is. This is partly Kurz's fault, for giving a half-assed description (about all he said of it was that the fruit was hairy), and partly Baker's fault for not doing his research very well and giving the wrong name priority. Nevertheless, all of those fine folks are dead, and here we are. And in another 100 years, we'll all be dead too, and people will still be calling it Musa velutina, LOL!
