English term or phrase: lectotype
Definition from University of Washington :
A specimen subsequently selected from the paratypes to serve as the holotype in the absence of the bona fide holotype. A single specimen subsequently selected from a cotype or syntype series; equivalent of a holotype.

Example sentence(s):
  • A lectotype may be chosen from the original illustrated specimens, taking the original description into full account. All specimens associated with the lectotype remain syntypes. Victoria University of Wellington
  • A lectotype and an allolectotype were selected to establish the taxonomic base for the genus. A ruling has been requested from the International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature on the disposition of the neotype. Journal of Nematology
  • The valid designation of a lectotype fixes the status of the specimen as the sole name-bearing type of that nominal taxon; no later designation of a lectotype has any validity. Int. Commission Zoological Nomenclature
