    Thank you sir...
    I am searching on websites but there is no sufficient and appropriate information.

    To clarify, do you mean a newly-discovered species, or a new hybrid?

    If it's the latter, do a search for "International Orchid Registrar," as you'll find the necessary instructions and application form there.

    As far as I know, there is no "registration" of species. Instead, one must be the first to technically describe the plant and flower in a respected botanical journal, so that it may be peer reviewed. If the taxonomists of the world don't immediately find a flaw in the novelty of the plant, you're good to go.

    This article gives a good overview on how to name a new species of dinosaur but it would be the same for any new species.

    Evidently publishing a new species does not require peer-review.

    "Oddly though, peer-review is not a requirement of identifying names and this can cause problems through those who deliberately or accidentally flaunt the conventions of naming and create names that cause confusion, not solve it."

    As far as I know in OTF the only member who has discovered a new species and had it named after him namely Paph canhii is C X Canh. Perhaps you could contact him for further details.
