The name Nephilingis in the article does not comply with ICZN Code requirements and the supplementary material (online-only) was not registered in ZooBank (neither was the article itself).

Thus, the name Nephilingis is unavailable.

Without having time just now to check the details of this case, I would nevertheless like to offer the general remark that Code compliance has become so very complex and "political" (i.e. the group waving the biggest "political stick" decides if it is compliant or not, and the Commission goes along with them - "post truth world"), that the only practical approach, in my opinion, is to treat everything as if it were Code compliant (except in the most obviously and uncontroversially non-compliant cases), until such time, if ever, that there is a significant push to claim otherwise. I would take the approach of using names as if they were Code compliant with just a brief footnote explaining any potential nomenclatural problems associated with the name.Cheers,Stephen

Nephilingis Kuntner, 2013 was proposed in an online only appendix to the following paper:
Kuntner, M., Arnedo, M.A., Trontelj, P., Lokovšek, T. & Agnarsson, I. 2013. A molecular phylogeny of nephilid spiders: evolutionary history of a model lineage. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 69(3): 961-979. ezlab.zrc-sazu.si/uploads/2013/10/Kuntneral2013_NephPhylogeny.pdf

Can a name published in this manner be considered available? The genus is included as validly published in the World Spider Catalog: wsc.nmbe.ch/genusdetail/2046
