I was looking but it appears there isn't a database for fungi to add the photo to.

No. The database is for plants and fungi aren't plants. They are interesting and have an association with plants, but are not plants themselves.

I think that science is starting to prove/accept that fungi are actually closer related to animals than they are plants, I may be misunderstanding that tho.

It's certainly a database worthy pic!
I'd be excited at the prospect of a fungi database, but it would be complex to manage!

@Swayback just perusing here and thought you might find it interesting that there are actually 6 "Kingdoms".
Plants, Animals, Archaebacteria, Eubacteria, Fungi and Protists.

Findings have definitely shown that fungi are more closely related to animals than plants. It is fascinating. (:

Yup. That is why fungal infections are harder to get rid of than bacterial infections.

I can find some!! I am a biology major and last semester we extensively covered fungi. My textbook really delved into the phylogeny of fungi and animals and how they are more closely related to than plants!

Here is an article from the National Academy of Sciences talking about the proteins found in both fungi and animals:
