Default species list

Is there a complete list of all banana species available somewhere? I looked on the wiki, but couldn't find a comlete list.

The discussion here is good:
Musa - Bananas Wiki
I would guess you are referring to all known and accepted species, since "all species" is an intractable question!

Thanks. That's good, but I was looking for a list of species of all genera of what are called 'banana'. I know I've seen a list somewhere, but can't remember where. And yes, I do mean all known and accepted species. What else is there?

This site is always a good start, start on this page then look around the site for tons more info on wild species.
Musaceae Summary 1

This is a checklist of all published names, so not nearly all of are valid or accepted, but there are good notes about some.
http://www.mnhn.fr/museum/front/medi...95_a08n1a7.pdf

And finally, starting on page 45 of this document there is an excellent list of all accepted species up until the time of publication, but do check out the rest of the document too for other great info!

http://www.olis.oecd.org/olis/2009do...JT03274933.PDF

If you look at these 3 sources, and connect them all together, you will have all the info you probably want now and all the references to find all the info you may want in the future.

In terms of the species in Genus Musa, that is about it. You can find longer lists but acceptance drops off dramatically.

There are of course many hybrids -- all of the seedless fruiting bananas are hybrids of one or more species. For example Musa 'Dwarf Namwa'. None of these will be listed as species. There are several hundred known hybrids and since the hybrids themselves sometimes produce mutant pups (offshoots) the list is constantly growing.

Also, there are other Genera containing species sold as ornamental bananas. You can read about those here: Musaceae - Bananas Wiki

Thanks! Very useful info! When I start learning about a new type of plant, I like to learn the species, where they come from, and how they grow, to get a better idea about the genus and family etc. Thanks again.
