Dear Christina and Ron

It does not need to be the first name in the publication. The ICZN has a provision to handle cases like this. If you are the first reviser of the taxon you can effectively choose between the names in the publication. See article 24.2.2

24.2.2. Determination of precedence of names or acts by the First Reviser. If two or more names, different or identical, and based on the same or different types, or two or more nomenclatural acts, are published on the same date in the same or different works, the precedence of the names or acts is fixed by the First Reviser unless Article 24.1 applies.

All the best, Christian
