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.

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.
