Re: Typical and less typical types

A bit of nit-picking here-
Longosaurus longicollis Welles, 1984 is not an objective synonym of
Coelophysis longicollis (Cope, 1887) Cope, 1889. The lectotype of
Coelophysis longicollis is a cervical vertebra (AMNH 2701), while the
holotype of Longosaurus longicollis is an ilium (AMNH 2705).
This was done by Welles (1984), correct?
Nevertheless, I would assume that AMNH 2701 and AMNH 2705 are topotypes. It
is curious that the name _Longosaurus longicollis_ was attached to an ilium,
since "longicollis" means "long neck".
