nice to see them, Thanks …

isn’t there a clearing house of sorts that approves each naming… ie each paper to be published that wants to present a new species or re-name a plant already named and studied?

if there is then why so many names of the same thing?

eludes me

may be there is no simple answer

Many reasons:

1. Usually journals publish things which are properly written. 
2. Sometimes they miss that too and hence the name gets invalid or illegitimate. 
3. It all depends on the reviewers about how thoroughly they can review. Some reviewers just check technical aspects. 
4. Orchid world is so big and its not possible to get all information at one place so people miss few literature and hence they miss to understand that the species was already identified.

5. Sometimes different people have different perceptions, some say plants are same, some say they are different. 
There are some orchids which have around 60 synonyms. As time goes by, people realise and then they merge them together one by one.
Hope my language is understandable.


yes and I am hopeful that in this day and age of internet more information can be had in one place without waiting to xerox etc all papers
it would indeed get easier and you wrote it nicely
