regarding definitive specimens

 I have a question about basic procedure regarding the description of
species. I've always assumed that only mature (definitive, as opposed to
immature) specimens were used as type species specimens, but I can't find a
written reference to that principle.  I realize this is rather arcane, but
it's something I need for a discussion group.   Thanks.
