The definitions of the various categories of types in the "Code" are somewhat ambiguous, and have been interpreted in conflicting ways by different authors. In particular, problems have arisen where a single type collection cited in the protologue consists of a series of duplicates. When is lectotypification necessary? How should the term 'syntype' be interpreted? Amendments to the wording of the "Code" are suggested with the aim of achieving uniformity of practice.
