Dear colleagues,

I have a short question on nomina nuda as type species.

If a subsequent author chose as type species of a genus a nomen nudum, can
another author invalidate this selection and chosse a valid taxon instead?
He could have chosen a valid name but chose the nomen nudum following the
recommendation to choose the first species in the list under the genus.
