Question about authorship of new names in zoology

Dear Taxacomers,

I have the following question: is it possible, in zoological
nomenclature, to publish a taxonomic paper with, for example, three
authors, and to publish a new species name in that article with only one
or two author names? Is there an article of the code which deals with
this possibility? I know it is being done in botany but no zoological
example comes to my mind.

Best regards,
