I could probably figure this out from the rules of nomenclature, but
perhaps someone will know off the cuff as I would like to be sure and have
the info quickly. If someone in 1958 states "type, a male, unique...…" is
that sufficient for the specimen to be referred to as a holotype since it
is clear that the type is represented by a single specimen?

Thanks. John Grehan
