Re: Sauropod museums in New England

In fact, Linnaeus is even the lectotype of *Homo sapiens*. More information here: http://iczn.org/content/who-type-homo-sapiens and there: http://www.jstor.org/stable/4065043 Besides, unless he had been some kind of immortal sparkly vampire (yuck!), Cope wasn't even born when Linnaeus died so he was and is still not eligible for lectotype.

the type specimen of Humans (Cope himself)
Nope. The type specimen is Linnaeus, in his tomb in the cathedral of Uppsala. I 
don't remember when the ICZN published that Opinion, but it was several years 
ago in any case.
