OK, that makes some sense. Note however that this isn't an issue about "e-only published names", it is also about online first names, and their effective dates of publication. Back to that example, OK, it seems to be saying something along the lines of "if the only evidence that an author provides, in a work, of ZooBank preregistration, is the (purported) exact date of registration, but that date is incorrect, then the work is unavailable". However, it would be a rare (I'm not sure that it has ever happened?) and somewhat foolish choice for an author to provide only that as evidence, but, more to the point, it still seems to be at odds with: An error in stating the evidence of registration does not make a work unavailable, provided that the work can be unambiguously associated with a record created in the Official Register of Zoological Nomenclature before the work was published

 Sorry I cannot do that, since I do not have any papers with
 e-only published 
 names in them here (no-one has yet published in this manner
 in my group).
 The example you asked about assumes that the author uses the
 date of 
 registration in Zoobank as evidence of such registration as
 per Article 
 "be registered in the Official Register of Zoological
 Nomenclature (ZooBank) 
 (see Article 78.2.4) and contain evidence in the work itself
 that such 
 registration has occurred."
 The example of such registration given states:
 "Evidence of registration is given by stating information
 that would be 
 known only if the registration has occurred, such as the
 exact date of 
 registration or the registration number assigned to the work
 or to a new 
 name or nomenclatural act introduced in the work."
 Thus in the subsequent example you queried, the author chose
 to include the 
 registration date in his work, but forgot to actually
 register the work on 
 that date.
 Remember that this is an example, and you have to assume
 that an author has 
 chosen this method of proving he has registered the work
 with Zoobank. He 
 could have chosen other methods stipulated in Article
