Hi all,
Currently the word "Typus" must be (the word "Holotype" should  be; cf. Art. 37.6) written with a clearly link to the cited voucher and the herbarium where it is stored to avoid an invalid publication.

Hello all!

I couldn't find in the ICBN, what exatelly means when a taxon is described, of the following point of view: it is necessary that HOLOTYPE followed of voucher is written, or simply to cite vocher is enough, that is without word HOLOTYPE.

The best whishes,
