What is gen. indet. imperfectus?

I ran across the name gen. indet. imperfectus in Olshevsky's Asian dinosaur
list and vaguely remembered it in The Dinosauria's faunal list.  Apparently
named by Young at the same time as Sanpasaurus, he considered it generically
indeterminate but assigned it to a new species (imperfectus).  This makes no
sense to me.  Is naming a new species in an indeterminate unnamed genus
allowed by the ICZN?
