As it says in the title, I'm curious about what exactly happens or how long it might take for it to be published as species with binomial nomenclature? This thought popped up a while ago after seeing a post of that purple baboon that was discovered. I'd appreciate an answer or an informative link to see what all goes on when someone discovers a new T or even any animal in general.

Thanks,

Trev

I think this thread would be better placed in the Tarantula Questions and Discussions section.

I discovered a new species of mushroom in 2013, the process is still ongoing.
