<div>Hi Rod,
<div class="">that has been reported many times. The species API does NOT return type specimen, although the URL suggests that. It did so in the beginnings, hence the URL. </div>
<div class="">It duplicated the occurrence method and conflated the type species responses for genus and higher taxa, so we ended up removing all type specimen responses and now only use it to return type species names. There are several threads about this
 in this mailing list already. To get the types for the species call:</div>
<div class=""><a href="http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?taxonKey=7424919&typeStatus=*" class="">http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?taxonKey=7424919&typeStatus=*</a></div>
<div class=""><br class="">
</div>
<div class="">Changing the URL would break backwards compatability, but this is one URL I really would like to see renamed as it consistently causes confusion.</div>
