I don’t know if this issue will ever be settled.

Right now “barcoding” and DNA analysis is “hot”, causing old genera be reshuffled and rearranged. Tomorrow they will come up with something else: how much time neutrino takes to pass through the body of mushroom will define species, or something like that.

Maybe later, Andrew :-)

But I have renamed all of my own badia/badius observations.

The genus Boletus is in the process of being mostly dismantled. My understanding is the only species that will remain in Boletus are the edulis types.

So prepare for an onslaught of new genus names… not to mention those pesky ia/us endings that always seem to change on the converted species name.

Dave, while at it, you need to rename all 70 observations of B.badius into I.badia :)

This mushroom was doing just fine in genus Boletus, but someone decided it wasn’t good enough, and put it into this new genus Imleria. Kuo still lists it as Boletus while mentioning its new name, which tells me he is not really enthusiastic about it for some reason. See link here:
