Definition: Typification is the process of relying on general knowledge as a way of constructing ideas about people and the social world. As we participate in social life, most of what we know of other people does not take the form of direct personal knowledge, but rather general knowledge about our social world.
A lectotype is a specimen or illustration designated from the original material as the nomenclatural type, in conformity with Art. 9.11 and 9.12, if no holotype was indicated at the time of publication, or if the holotype is missing, or if a type is found to belong to more than one taxon (see also Art. 9.14).
