The Musaceae Family was named and described by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu in Genera Plantarum in 1789.
Plants of the World Online lists 3 accepted genera in this family of bananas. The genus Ensete contains 7 accepted species, the Musa genus contains 85 accepted species, and the genus Musella contains only one species. The 2013 version of The Plant List (no longer maintained) only listed 2 genera. Previously, or at some point, there were a few others that were moved to the Heliconiaceae and Strelitziaceae families (which is a story in itself).
