The 2nd photo is Pisang Mas, the 6th likely Pisang Awak, and the wild one at the end some form of M. acuminata. The rest of them need more detailed photos, but I don't know the cultivars there well anyways.

I'm surprised of your answer Gabe concerning the wild one because of the black stem and petioles ...So anyway thank you for your help and here are some other pics




these are very interesting they grow in a park of Kuala Lumpur which is in fact a piece of Jungle ...They are 3m high with small bananas and bunches erected like ornemental species...




same as the first pic ,cultivated bananas on a small island in front of Malacca







The last two pics are young seedlings found in the jungle of Tioman Island unhappily i couldn't find the parents cause the jungle was very deep in this place...That's also the reason why there are a lot of unidentified plants on this island even now...





Cultivated one on Tioman island :they actually cut the flower of the bunches





















the last 9 pics show the park in Kuala Lumpur : a little jungle in the town...

and have a look of what i fung inside the twin towers of Kuala Lumpur

All of those wild ones you saw are different types of M. acuminata, it is an extremely diverse species with many, sometimes ill-defined, forms. The erect bunches ones appear to be something I have only ever heard about in conversation, but not seen photos of. They look to be erect bunched M. acuminata. The one with the red bud could be a form of subsp. malaccensis but I'm not so sure on these.

Thumbs up Re: Malaysian bananas

Many thanks, very beautiful pictures! Rainforests are very diverse and beautiful in itself, they comprise the big variety of a life, both plants, and animals, insects. I admire this miracle! The nature proves in all delights. It seems to me there even it is possible to meet not described varieties of bananas.
