Re: In search of type specimens
Vultur gryphus was originally described by Linnaeus in Systema Naturae Ed.
X (1758) so there is no type specimen as such. Linnaeus first citation is
"Klein 45" so I suppose You could consider this as a sort of "type specimen":
(go to page 45)
The original description for Crocodylus niloticus is here:
(on page 53)
I have no idea if anyone has ever defined a neotype for either species.
