That is a problem. I have seen the name for the be + -ing verb form change a number of times, with competing terms in use today, though the last term suggested doesn't seem to have taken off. There's no central body to decide on these things, so I am afraid that we have to muddle through the best we can. However, on the bright side, the confusion does not seem to have prevented you from reaching native speaker level, so it can't all be bad.
