Currently the holotype links to:

Type specimens, perhaps this can be renamed to Typifications. Otherwise, "Type specimens" can only refer to a species. Anything higher (ie genus) should refer to a "Type species".

As of the latest change to POR-620, the link should be fine. The full text species search (?q=) goes through scientificName - please refer to We don't have a parameter for "scientificName" on species search.

For example, the type specimen link being produced now is something like http://localhost:8080/species/search?q=Abrosoma+discolor+Redtenbacher%2C+1906 which is correct.
