of those with no photos or a Fungi ID; an all too general designation for most of these, as in the case of agarics which can at least be safely (and hopefully temporarily) housed under Agaricomycetes. Non-Russulales, -gilled Boletales (eg: Paxillus) -chanterelles and -Lentinoid agarics will permit Agaricales, and so on.
Call it a remedy to Fungi sp. acting as the default “I don’t know” option, even when further distinctions can easily be made (basidio, asco, lichen, non-fungal, etc.). The end result leaves Fungi sp. on only those observations which are so baffling as to be unidentifiable even to phylum… aside from those which are of several species, which I propose receive a new label of Fungi spp. or some other convention to distinguish them.
This is an older observation — what brought it to your attention?
