In the Orthoptera species file (http://orthoptera.speciesfile.org/HomePage.aspx), you can find records like:
  "species Macrolopholia species [temporary name]"
  "species Rufocephalus Unnamed species Bailey, Bennet-Clark & Fletcher, 2001"
Several papers operate with provisional names, e.g., http://www.frontiersinzoology.com/content/pdf/1742-9994-6-31.pdf

Dear all,

Can you suggest any database model (or paper discussing this) where provisional names of the new taxa are implemented?

Best wishes,
