Subject: Re[2]: Deposit of type material
          The Australian Government passed a law in 1984 that says
          that holotypes must be deposited in Australia. The act
          defines the kind of institution that can be a repository for
          the holotype.
          The act is regulated through export permits which are
          required in order to take specimens out of Australia, and
          it is a condition of the export permit that holotypes be
          deposited in Australia.
