A petrified pseudostem from the Deccan intertrappean beds, belonging to the family Musaceae is described in this paper and referred to Jain’sMusocaulon indicum. Some of Jain’s observations are confirmed and new facts not recorded by him are figured and described. The anatomy of the midrib and epidermis with stomata has been studied. These facts confirm the Musaceous affinity of the specimen and draw attention to features of resemblance between the living genusMusa and the petrified specimen.
