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.


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