Harald appears to be right. Even though the terms above are listed in the dictionaries, they do not seem to be used that often. Maybe "incisional biopsy" would be a better term. Here is what I found:

Excisional biopsy: Commonly used to remove a tumor suspected to be skin cancer, an excisional biopsy consists of removing the entire lesion along with a margin (section of skin that appears to be unaffected). The wound created by a small excisional biopsy may not require treatment. In some cases, stitches, a skin graft, or a skin flap are needed to treat the wound.

***Incisional biopsy***: During this biopsy, only a portion of the lesion is removed. This procedure is considered when a lesion is large or the location requires maximum preservation of tissue (such as on a hand or foot). A portion of the lesion may be removed by using a scalpel; a hollow, circular scalpel-like medical instrument called a “punch” (punch biopsy); or a razor (shave biopsy). An incisional biopsy generally is not used to remove a suspected melanoma unless the suspicion for melanoma is low, the lesion is large, or an excisional biopsy is impractical.

Nail bed biopsy: When a dermatologist suspects that melanoma may be present under a nail, a nail bed biopsy is performed. During this procedure, part or all of the fingernail or toenail is removed and an excisional or incisional biopsy is performed on the suspect lesion.

Needle biopsy: This procedure is rarely used to remove skin tissue. Rather, it is used to obtain a sample from an internal organ, lymph node, or subcutaneous (beneath the skin) tissue to determine if the skin cancer has spread. To perform the procedure, a surgeon or other specially trained physician, inserts a small, hollow needle, which is guided by an X-ray or other imaging technique, into the area.

What is an ***incisional biopsy***?
Any surgical procedure that is focused on sampling or removing abnormal tissue from a site in the body in order to make a definitive diagnosis may be considered to be an incisional biopsy. These types of procedures are usually performed when abnormal tissue is located in a site of the body that is not directly accessible by less invasive means. They may also be performed when it is necessary to preserve the structure of abnormal tissue in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Incisional biopsies may vary in complexity, depending on the location of the tissue that needs to be sampled. In situations where abnormal tissue is located just beneath the skin, an incisional biopsy may be performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic. In most other situations, incisional biopsies require surgery under general anesthesia. In situations where a potential diagnosis is suspected, a sample of tissue removed during an incisional biopsy may be frozen and submitted for immediate pathologic analysis. If the diagnosis is confirmed, the surgeon may then proceed to remove as much of the tissue as possible.
