Archaeopteryx lithographica von Meyer, 1861 (Aves): conservation of usage by designation of a neotype
Abstract

The Commission has set aside all previous type fixations for the nominal species Archaeopteryx lithographica von Meyer, 1861 and designated a feathered specimen (BMNH 37001) in the Natural History Museum, London as the neotype. The holotype (a feather impression) was not identifiable to species and could belong to any taxon of fossil birds recognised from the Solnhofen limestone.
