Finally my new species got published.
I am trying to get it on free access then I can share the pdf on group. For the time being please find the plates of my new species attached here with the mail.

This article include rectification of many taxonomic issues that I could have done in 3-4 separate articles but decided to do all in one, which enhanced the value of this article.
1. Gastrochilus kadooriei: is a new species described which I found in Hong Kong in 2012 during one of my hikes. It had been long misidentified by many people across the world as Gastrochilus pseudodistichus (King & Pantl.) Schltr.. This is after a gap of nearly 40 years that a new species is being described from Hong Kong.
2. Gastrochilus jeitouensis Ormerod has been reduced as new synonym for Gastrochilus distichus (Lindl.) Kuntze with relevant justifications.
3. Gastrochilus fuscopunctatus (Hayata) Hayata has been reinstated as an accepted species [earlier it was merged into Gastrochilus pseudodistichus (King & Pantl.) Schltr.].
4. Lectotype has been designated for Gastrochilus pseudodistichus (King & Pantl.) Schltr.
Hope you all will like it.


Hearties Congratulation.. This is just beginning at HK.. many more will come 

Proud of you … I am soo happy for u 🙂
Keep up & Keep progressing  🙂


Great news..congrats!!

I hope there are many more to come.. gap is really big, but now the backlog will be surely compensated..


Great News … Hearty Congratulations..


Thanks a lot for appreciation.
I would also like to express that I actually got less help from fellows in India where I was expecting. G. pseudodistichus and G. distichus was described from Sikkim and I know many people in Sikkim who could have helped me but they didnt. 
Lets make this group a source of sharing knowledge where members can help each other. Lets make our group so well represented by members from each and every part of India that we dont need to spread our hands in front of anyone outside this group. 
I never said no to anyone who needed my help here in the group, whether it is associated with sharing of pics or reprints.

Abstract– A new species, Gastrochilus kadooriei, is described from Hong Kong. Notes are presented on its distribution, ecology and conservation status, and its distinguishing features are compared with those of allied taxa. Gastrochilus jeitouensis is reduced to the synonymy of G. distichus, and a lectotype is assigned for G. pseudodistichus. Gastrochilus fuscopunctatus is reinstated as an accepted species. Dichotomous keys to this taxonomically difficult group of morphologically similar species are presented.
