If it fulfills the criteria for availability of electronic publications it would be available:
But I suspect the paper would neither have an ISSN nor would it be archived in an approved archived separate from the publisher. So it would not fulfill all the criteria for availability and would be considered unpublished and unavailable for nomenclatural purposes. I would not pre-publish any nomenclaturally relevant paper. Just publish it!

Dear Taxacomers,

happy new year to all. I have a question regarding preprints. If a preprint contains a taxonomic description and is published online in, say, the BioRxiv, (1) would that publication represent a valid publication (note that a DOI is provided by the BioRxiv) (2) what would happen with the later publication (in a journal) of the paper (note it will have a different DOI).

thanks for your answers,


Dr. Sergio Vargas R.
