Also of interest, nomen invalidum is used in IPNI, see here:
Glossary of terms, taken from ICBN (2006) <http://ibot.sav.sk/icbn/main.htm>,
except for nom. inval., which is not defined in the Glossary. A modified
version of the definition of a validly published name is used here.
*nom. inval. *(*nomen invalidum*)
A name not validly published according to Art. 29-45 or H.9 (Art. 6.2).
Now I am wondering why it is not in either of the two Code glossaries
