Definition of Term

type locality
(English) According to the Code, the geographical place of capture or collection of the name-bearing type of a nominal species or subspecies. If the name-bearing type was captured or collected after being transported by boat, vehicle, aircraft, or other human or mechanical means, the type locality is the place from which it, or its wild progenitor, began its unnatural journey. The population occurring at type locality is the topotypical population and specimens collected at type locality are topotypes. (See also: Code, name-bearing type, nominal taxon)
