  Holotype - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A holotype is the single physical example (or illustration) of an organism, known to be used when the taxon was formally described.
For example, the holotype for the butterfly Lycaeides idas longinus is held by the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University, and the holotype for the extinct mammal Cimolodon is at the University of Alberta.
The holotype of Pelorosausus humerocristatus, a large herbivore dinosaur from the early Jurassic period, is a fossil leg bone stored at the Natural History Museum in London.

 Science Fair Projects - Holotype
A holotype (sometimes simply type) is the single physical example or illustration of an organism that defines the characteristics of the whole species.
The holotype is often, but not always, the first example of the particular species that has been found because it represents the first opportunity to describe it in scientific literature.
These better specimens cannot replace the holotype because the ultimate purpose of the holotype is to serve as a physical reference connected to the original description.

 International Code of Botanical Nomenclature
An epitype is a specimen or illustration selected to serve as an interpretative type when the holotype, lectotype, or previously designated neotype, or all original material associated with a validly published name, is demonstrably ambiguous and cannot be critically identified for purposes of the precise application of the name of a taxon.
If no holotype was indicated by the author of a name of a species or infraspecific taxon, or when the holotype has been lost or destroyed, or when the material designated as type is found to belong to more than one taxon, a lectotype or, if permissible (Art.
When a holotype or a previously designated lectotype has been lost or destroyed and it can be shown that all the other original material differs taxonomically from the destroyed type, a neotype may be selected to preserve the usage established by the previous typification (see also Art.

 Primary zoological types in QVMAG: Oligochaete worms A-E
It is unclear which of these worms is the holotype and which are the vouchers (not paratypes) '14:1549, 14:3039, same sample as H, (posterior amputee plus four matures and one juvenile)' as given in Blakemore, 2000.
It is not clear which specimen is the holotype and which the 'posterior amputee, dissected' designated in Blakemore, 2000 as paratype P1 (14:3296).
It is presumed that the complete worm is the holotype and the two others are paratypes P1 (14:3093) and P2 (14:3094), each of which is referred to in Blakemore, 2000 as a 'mature, posterior amputee'.

Abstract: This list presents the type material in the Insect Research Collection of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The list includes primary types (holotypes) and a number of secondary type categories (allotypes, autotypes, homeotypes, metatypes, and paratypes) in Coleoptera, Diptera, Hemiptera, Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera, and Odonata.
This represents the first attempt to list type material deposited in the University of Wisconsin Insect Research Collection (UWIRC).

 Imperial College Greenland Diving Expedition 1995: The Ikaite Holotype
Though the mineral had since been discovered in other global locations, these locations were either seasonal or in deep sea sediments and therefore not readily accessible, as opposed to Ikka Fjord, where the ikaite was known to occur perennially.
Though the Ikka Fjord area has been studied in some detail with regards the Precambrian carbonatite - syenite intrusive complex, the two expeditions of the summer of 1995 (Copenhagen University and ICGDE), were the first time that scientists had re-visited the holotype locality to re-study the mineral.
Due to the nature of Paulys' gravimetric analysis, it wasn't even sure whether the columns of Ikka fjord were indeed calcium carbonate hexahydrate, some other calcium carbonate hydrate, or a mixture of calcium (carbonate and other) hydrates

Sir Fred Hoyle, the astronomer who first made this accusation, argued that the fossils were actually reptile fossils with feather impressions either pressed into a thin layer of artificial cement, or chiseled directly into the rock.
However, a team of scientists disproved Hoyle's claims by performing a battery of tests on the holotype of Archaeopteryx (Charig et al.
Detailed examination of the feather impressions through scanning electron microscopy revealed "a degree of minute detail that [the scientists believed] would be impossible to carve, even today [written in 1986], and a total absence of any chisel marks" (Charig et al.

The type specimen is usually designated when a species is initially described (in which case it is called a holotype specimen); if not, then it may be designated subsequently, in further work on the species (in which case it is called a lectotype specimen).
Once designated, the type specimen may be changed only by a formal petition to and subsequent ruling by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (which doesn’t happen very often!).
