Diminished Octave

A musical ratio of 48:25. Same as Diminished Eighth.

In classical music from Western culture, a diminished octave is an interval produced by narrowing a perfect octave by a chromatic semitone. As such, the two notes are denoted by the same letter but have different accidentals. For instance, the interval from C4 to C5 is a perfect octave, twelve semitones wide, and both the intervals from C♯4 to C5, and from C4 to C♭5 are diminished octaves, spanning eleven semitones. Being diminished, it is considered a dissonant interval?.

The diminished octave is enharmonically equivalent to the major seventh. Wikipedia, Diminished Octave (external link)
