Topic: Fungi in UK collections - not Plants!

Hello,

Can't remember who I've mentioned this to previously, but feeling the need to query how organisms are currently classified on the UK Collections & Data Partners page, here: https://registry.nbnatlas.org/

Fungi aren't Plants!

Can we get Fungi their own button?

Also..

INSECTS
Insects, spiders, mites .. wait spiders ?

They are obviously less bothered about this in Australia: https://collections.ala.org.au/ !

Thanks Sophie. Appreciate it's not easy coming up with a neat way of presenting this, as Life will insist on evolving into such a diverse array of forms. But I'll be happy if I just succeed in getting a big button for the Fungi. Cheers, Clare
