The genus:wikidata=* tag is a machine-readable form of genus=*. The value must be the Wikidata ID of an item that is representing a genus.

It should be used for plants that do not have their own Wikidata item and are not relevant enough to justify their own Wikidata item. Instead of creating a Wikidata item for those plants, add the genus:wikidata=* tag to the OSM object with the Wikidata ID of the relevant taxon as value.

This tag may also be used for attraction=animal.

Please also add the genus=* tag to these OSM objects, this key is not intended as a replacement for genus=*, rather as a supplement to uniquely identify a genus.

If exact species are known and possible to specify, please use species=* + species:wikidata=* instead, it is not useful to use both of them at once.
