In discussion of topological G-spaces (such as in equivariant homotopy theory and/or equivariant differential topology) by an orbit type one means the isomorphism class of orbits of the equivariance group.
Since every orbit of a group $G$ (typically taken to be a topological group) is isomorphic, as a topological G-space, to a coset space $G/H$, and since these coset spaces, in turn, are isomorphic to each other precisely if the subgroups $H$ are conjugate to each other (see also at orbit category), the $G$-orbit types are often identified with the conjugacy classes $(H)$ of the subgroups of $G$.
