There are probably alot of different Musa's that fit the description, and requirements for being called Musa balbisiana because it is one of the main ancestors of alot of present day bananas.

Thanks now you got me wondering about another questions. If it's an ancestor, does it get seeds?

Musa balbisiana is a wild species, although many edibles have M. balbisiana "blood" in them, they are not M. balbisiana themselves. M. balbisiana is however naturally variable as well as heavily cultivated for various purposes, so there are many different varieties of M. balbisiana, they are all similar enough though to be identified as the same basic species.

If this plant is true to its name, then yes it will have seeds if pollinated. If its not pollinated, it will just not make any fruit.
