type series  


  • Code: The series of specimens, as defined in the Code, on which the original author bases a new nominal species-group taxon in the absence of a holotype designation, any such specimen is eligible for subsequent designation as the name-bearing type (lectotype); prior to lectotype designation, all the specimens of the type-series are syntypes and collectively they constitute the namebearing type; excluded from the type-series are any specimens that the original author expressly excludes or refers to as distinct variants, or doubtfully includes in the taxon.
