Categorization of Brugs and Daturas

Are Brugmansia and Datura still separate genuses (?) of the Solonaceae family? I'm finding conflicting sources; one says datura is now under brugmansia, but the plant files here say differently. Wikipedia has them as different genuses but you can't trust them always.

TIA

They USED to be in the same genuses...but they do not fall into the same any longer.

A Dat is a Dat and that's Dat.

A brug is a brug and thats in a book. If it is a updated one.

Of course some folks still try to sell or tell you that a Datura is the same as a Brug.

Any reason why you ask?
Or just wanted to clarify?

As the ICRA Registrar for both of these genera, I can confirm that yes, they are distinct & separate. Below is a link to probably the most authoritative source possible; its the genera list at the International Society for Horticultural Science, where both are listed separately.
Also, all current publications list them separately. Two good ones for reference are "Brugmansia and Datura" by Ulrike & Hans-Georg Preissel, and "The European Garden Flora" by Stuart Max Walters and J. Cullen.
... although I think I like Lucy's explanation better. ;)
