Holotype

In describing a new species always a so-called Holotype appointed. The Holotype (type specimen) is typical of the species and includes all the described features. This specimen is supposed to be in an accessible place (such as a museum or other public collection). A Lectotype is a type specimen designated after the regulations came into force on holotypes. If Holotype or Lectotype are lost, a Neotype is designated.
