An interesting chart, but there's one problem. Algae, bacteria and fungi are listed as plants.

Thanks for your comment. You are right. The image comes from a book in 1978 when knowledge about biological classification was less clear. The main reason for the chart was to demonstrate the huge diversity of insects - which it shows quite well. ALCHEssMIST
