Fungi and Yeasts format and reference list: Status (indicating type or authentic strains)

Information taken from:
'Structuring Strain Data for Storage and Retrieval of Information on Fungi and Yeasts in MINE, the Microbial Information Network Europe'
Gams et al., Journal of General Microbiology (1988), 134, 1667-1689.

Status (indicating type or authentic strains)

As living fungal cultures cannot have the formal nomenclature status of a type specimen, the authenticity of any isolate derived from a type specimen or yielding a dried type culture (ex-type) is written as follow:

Type = ex type strain (in general)
Holotype = ex holotype strain (if the holotype status of the associated specimen is to be indicated explicitly)
Neotype = ex neotype strain
Lectotype = ex lectotype strain
Isotype = ex isotype
Syntype = ex syntype
Paratype = ex paratype
Aauthentic strain
Original strain
Reference strain

Status either refers to the name mentioned in the NAME fields, and then only one of the above abbreviations is given, or it refers to another name of the taxon, then that other name with author(s) is given, preceded by "of". References to literature on typification may be added after a delimiter ("<").
