New Descriptions

Dear All,

There is this little question that bothers me a lot, and that is;

How long does a new description continue to bear the "sp. n." attachment
before it becomes accepted by the name alone???

For example, from Bactrocera invadens sp.n. to Bactrocera invadens??
Is it just in the description publication?

Any rules, length of time or ideas?
