Fungi Classification
Researchers used to surmise that growths were individuals from the plant kingdom. They thought this since organisms had a few similitudes to plants

For example:

Fungi and plants have similar structures.
Plants and fungi live in the same kinds of habitats, such as growing in soil.
Plants and fungi cells both have a cell wall, which animals do not have.

The Types of Fungi

Type of Fungi Examples
Molds Penicillium
Mushrooms Morels, shiitake, cremini, oyster
Single-celled yeasts Baker’s yeast

Summary
Fungi are no longer classified as plants.
Despite the fact that organisms have cell dividers like plants, the cell dividers are made of chitin rather than cellulose. Sorts of growths incorporate molds, yeasts, and mushrooms.
