Yes,  it is meaningless. A name can have be a holotype or a lectotype - but not both. Hence Paul's comment.  Perhaps you can tell the author(s) which they seem to be referring to (assuming is one or the other) and help them understand the difference?

Subject: [Taxacom] HOLOLECTOTYPE

Hi to all

I apologize for the annoyance but I've a question to solve as a referee.

I'm working (as a referee) on a paper where is mentioned the word HOLOLECTOTYPE referred to botanical specimens.
This term Is unknown in the ICN, so seems useless and wrong. What do you think of this ?

Thanks and best regards
