Types in International Code of Zoological Nomenclature
The single specimen (except in the case of a hapantotype) designated or otherwise fixed as the name-bearing type of a nominal species or subspecies when the nominal taxon is established.
Each specimen of a type series other than the holotype.
The single specimen designated as the name-bearing type of a nominal species or subspecies when there is a need to define the nominal taxon objectively and no name-bearing type is believed to be extant.
Each specimen of a type series from which neither a holotype nor a lectotype has been designated. The syntypes collectively constitute the name-bearing type.
A syntype designated as the single name-bearing type specimen subsequent to the establishment of a nominal species or subspecies.
Each specimen of a former syntype series remaining after the designation of a lectotype.
A term, not regulated by the ICZN, for a designated specimen of opposite sex to the holotype.
A term, not regulated by the ICZN, for a specimen originating from the type locality of the species or subspecies to which it is thought to belong, whether or not the specimen is part of the type series.
