No, it does not make sense

The MO habit to put authority names behind “[Genus] sp.” indeed does not make any sense: Cf. Psilocybe sp. (Fr.) P. Kumm. (72945).

Does “Adolf” make sense?

The author is only important when we are talking nomenclature, to decide which species that should be regarded the type species of the genus – no big deal :-)

To add the authority behind the genus does not make sense
