Dear colleagues,

Thank you for the answers.

Stephen, thank you for your clarirfication. Yes, I am talking about
ZOOLOGICAL nomenclature. But could not find this specific case in the Code.
I agree with you that the type designation in this case cannot be sustained
and a new type species must be selected.

David, thanks for the link. It however does not contemplate the situation
where a nomen nudum is selected at type for a genus.

All the best,
