Is P. durus legit?

Nomenclature question:
Both MB and IF say P. durus is nom. illeg. IF supplies this detail:

Nomenclatural comment:
Nom. illegit., Art. 53.1
Editorial comment:
Polyporus durus Jungh. 1838

I’m guessing that this means that it could not have been legitimately transferred from Boletus to Polyporus because, at the time of the transfer, Polyporus durus was a legit name for another taxon.

Can you explain why MB and IF are wrong about this?
