Note(s) d'application

  • Code: Neotype: 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; if stability and universality are threatened, because an existing name-bearing type is either taxonomically inadequate or not in accord with the prevailing usage of a name, the Commission (ICZN) may use its plenary power to set aside that type and designate a neotype.
