Question for the group. The Code Says:
72.4.1. The type series of a nominal species-group taxon consists of all the specimens included by the author in the new nominal taxon...
72.4.5. When an author designates a holotype [Art. 73.1], then the other specimens of the type series are paratypes.
If a species is described and diagnosed on the basis of both the adult and larva, the larvae used are part of the types species under 72.4.1, and the specimens are paratypes under 72.4.5, no?
If you disagree, please explain why, other than that they could be expressly excluded.
