Dear colleques,

I have seen a long time ago "Entomological Nomenclature - List of terms for
TYPES" where are explanation of terms like Allotype, Autotype, Cotype,
Haplotype, Paratype etc. Anyone knows this referemce?

I would like to know:

 what is color code for some of this. I remember that  -
Red is for "Type, Paratype or Holotype",
Green is for "voucher specimen" and
Orange "Compared with Type specimen"...

When names as holotype, cotype and paratype was introduced and by who.
