How to recognise model type?

I guess it’s a silly question, but for pythia, model type (i.e. causal LLM) is given on model card or model page, but there are some model pages where the type is not mentioned, how do we recognise such model types?

Models listed in Hugging Face usually have a good description. Did you find one without the model type over there?

I want to know, just like causal lm, what other types do exist?

Here, in Mistral’s card, even though it’s written as text-generation, the type like causal lm is not mentioned.
