Musa and "Australimusa" (= Callimusa); Musa textilis clustered with M. lolodensis and Musa troglodytarum (as Musa fehi), and together sister to the other species of sect. Callimusa; it proposed M. lolodensis as the "closest wild relative of fe'i bananas", but noting that due to low statistical support, this proposal did not exclude the hypothesis that "fe'i bananas were derived from M. textilis or M. lolodensis × M. textilis hybrids"
