[Taxacom] Question about nomina nuda as type species

Assuming that we are talking ZOOLOGICAL nomenclature, a type species cannot be a nomen nudum, so in such cases, there is no type species as yet validly designated.

 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.
