As of 2020, around 148,000 species of fungi have been described by taxonomists, but the global biodiversity of the fungus kingdom is not fully understood. A 2017 estimate suggests there may be between 2.2 and 3.8 million species. The number of new fungi species discovered yearly has increased from 1,000 to 1,500 per year about 10 years ago, to about 2000 with a peak of more than 2,500 species in 2016. In the year 2019, 1882 new species of fungi were described, and it was estimated that more than 90% of fungi remain unknown.
By extension, the term "mushroom" can also refer to either the entire fungus when in culture, the thallus (called a mycelium) of species forming the fruiting bodies called mushrooms, or the species itself.

Bizarre , je ne vois pas de champignons sur ce mur ; il y a deux espèces de plantes chlorophylliennes : un petit Sedum à droite , et deux plantules de Umbilicus rupestres ou Nombril de vénus à gauche; toutes deux sont des Crassulacées , donc des plantes à fleurs

Maybe you are right for I am no specialist and it was a local friend who told me.
By the way, this is a piece of wood outside one old house.
