The Code has two definitions of extant.   Also, Article 73.1.4 is clear 
that: .. the fact that the specimen ... cannot be traced does not of itself 
invalidate the designation.

If a specimen had been retained but was lost in a plane crash while en route 
to a museum, would you still consider the name unavailable?
