I think you should check your sources, and the definition of flora.
I still disagree, after checking my sources and the definition. Here's the definition of flora:
n., pl. flo·ras or flo·rae
1. Plants considered as a group, especially the plants of a particular country, region, or time.
2. A treatise describing the plants of a region or time.
3. The bacteria and other microorganisms that normally inhabit a bodily organ or part.
(American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, via dictionary.com)
...and since Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, and Protista are the four kingdoms under the Eukaryota domain, saying fungi are plants would be like saying plants are animals.
I didn't vote on this image, and it wouldn't have affected my vote anyway because a lot of people view them as being plants. Even some scientists do group them together, but most don't and I went with the view of the majority on this one. Anyway, you already wasted 5 minutes of your life reading this 'cause I'm so damn wordy, so I'll stop here. Just thought it'd be nice to do what you asked, even if it's almost 6 months late.
