Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Ravenala. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Ravenala madagascariensis 68065

Taxonomic Split 101698 (Committed on 11-21-2021)

In November 2021 five new species of the once monotypic genus Ravenala have been described:



Since all individuals of the genus were previously identified as the only known species Ravenala madagascariensis, I am doing a taxon split for the genus in order to draw attention to the fact that the previous identifications aswell as new observations in Madagascar must be checked carefully.

Thomas Haevermans (whom I know) and team have made a great work about Ravenala classification. However, I am pretty sure that all Ravenala's observations outside of Madagascar, belong to R. madagascariensis. And this is a huge number of observations. But I don't know if it is possible to perform a geographic negative search (NOT in Madagascar) and apply a global taxon change to the numerous relevant observations. If this is not possible, this will be a tedious work to do...

@kai_schablewski can you make sure to add deviations when you curate away from our reference (in this case POWO which treats Ravenala blancii s sensu lato) thanks!
