For decades the evolutionary biology has made efforts to understand the meaning of "species" and explain the training process. Currently, there are over twenty different species concepts. The use of different concepts leads to improper and misleading comparisons. On the other hand, catastrophic biologists for decades used the term "type" or "group" for what they consider categories of organisms not genetically related. Thus, each of the various categories of species, subspecies and varieties seen today were designed to diversify a basic common ancestor type. Morphological patterns around the taxon gender was identified with ancestral fossils buried in a catastrophic recent basic; this model tells us a story of a period of: 1) rapid speciation, 2) stay with high number of species in a stable environment (fossil replay without environmental evolutionary pressures), 3) disaster followed by massive burial of population alive evidenced by the repetition of the same fossil species (which detracts punctuality), 4) presence of several different species together in the fossil record, lots of vertebrate fossils (which features disaster of great magnitude and high rates of sedimentation), and 5) drastic change in the environment causing the radiation of species in recent layers of sample form and the millions of species on the current biodiversity.

Keywords: Basic types ancestors, catrastrophism, rapid speciation, morphological stasis, punctualism.
