@Seema, There has been a lot of discusion on ProjectNoah before whether these belong to the fungi category.
I think the outcome was Cup Lichen don't belong to fungi category since lichens in general are the result of a symbiosis between fungi and algae. That's why I decided to put them under 'other' for now.
