Maybe taxacom'ers in Uppsala can answer this question:
Is the type material of Homo sapiens available for loan to
reckognized research institutions? What if somebody wants to describe
a new species in the genus and wishes to compare with the type of H.
sapiens? Doesn't the zoological code require that type material is
properly curated and available for study?

Happy new year,
