Abstract

SUMMARY

The Bacteriological, Botanical and Zoological Codes as well as several authors have proposed or recognized the use of terms to designate the nature of the relationship between the “type” of a species, a subspecies or an infrasubspecific form on the one hand, and related specimens, cultures or strains on the other. Twenty-one terms are listed, defined and some possible relationship to bacteriological nomenclature indicated. The terms discussed are archecultype, cotype, holocultype, holotype, homocultype, graphocultype, lectotype, lectocultype, merocultype, metacultype, monocultype, nomenclatural type, paracultype, paratype, syncultype, syntype, thanotocultype, type, type culture, type specimen, and type strain.
