B. ‘Versicolor Orange’, B. ‘Versicolor Peach’, B. ‘Versicolor Pink’ and B. ‘Versicolor Salmon’: These names seem to have drifted into being in the USA from descriptive tags for various examples of B. versicolor. The names B. ‘Versicolor Peach’ and B. ‘Versicolor Orange’ are now in widespread use. They were established in Hay et al. (2012). As noted above, the established name B. ‘Salmon Peach’ may be applicable to B. ‘Versicolor Peach’. However, if that is the case, in our view the name B. ‘Versicolor Peach’ should take priority on the grounds of its far more extensive use. That a name should be adopted in such circumstances does, however, require a formal determination to be made by the ICRA (2009 ICNCP, Art. 11.5).
