You should be able to edit your own posts.

To answer your question, both anemones and mushrooms fall under the Phylum *Cnidarians*, Class *Anthozoa*, and Subclass *Zoantharia*, but they are in separate/different "Orders":

Phylum - Cnidaria
Class - Anthozoa
Subclass - Zoantharia

Order - Actinaria (Sea Anemones)
Order - Zoanthiniaria (Colonial Anemones)
Order - Corallimorpharia (Mushroom Anemones)
Order - Scleractinia (Stony Corals)

Strange that Anemones are more closely related to sps than they are to soft corals (soft corals fall under Subclass - Octocorallia, Order - Alcyonacea, Suborder - Alcyoniina).

HTH,
