An explanation for the attribution to Joseph Banks of two species names, the only two (besides one genus name) so attributable to him alone, is provided: currently the species concerned are correctly referred to as Phaius tankervilleae (Banks) Blume (Orchidaceae) and Strelitzia reginae Banks (Strelitziaceae).
