That's my understanding/training, too. Any publication of the name prior to
the description becomes "registered" as a _nomen nudum_ on page 1 of the
article and then "registered" as a real name on the page containing the
description. Any listing of synonymies is then supposed to include both
citations, one as a _nomen nudum_ and a second time when it becomes "real".
