Musella lasiocarpa (syn. Musa lasiocarpa), commonly known as Chinese Dwarf Banana, Golden Lotus Banana or Chinese Yellow Banana, is the sole species in the genus Musella. It is thus a close relative of bananas, and also a member of the family Musaceae.

The plant is known for its erect, yellow pseudostems, generally appearing during the second year of cultivation, that can last a few months. Just before opening, the yellow, flower-like pseudostem resembles a lotus - from which the plant gets one of its names.
