Strelitzia reginae Banks, Icon.: t. Strelitzia reginae (1788); Aiton,
Hortus Kew. 1: 285. t. 2. (1789).

I am attaching the second citation and I assume at most of the places
this taxa is given with incorrect author citation and the first
description is by Banks which is actually just a Painting of this
plant.

IPNI and Govaerts cites this as Strelitzia reginae Banks; GRIN as
Strelitzia reginae Aiton.
