The current nomenclature adopted by the IUCr prefers to use the expression **Bravais types of lattices** to emphasize that **Bravais lattices** are not individual lattices but types or classes of all lattices with certain common properties.

## Definition

All vector lattices whose matrix groups belong to the same Bravais arithmetic class correspond to the same **Bravais type of lattice**.
