Mold from AC Unit

This is an image of a colony of mold. The sample, dark brown to black in color, was collected from the air conditioning unit in my room on 4/15/19 at 4:30 pm. It was then mounted on a glass slide with a droplet of water and plastic cover slip. The picture was taken by a Samsung S5 Galaxy and Foldscope lens.

Judging from the intertwined structure made of filaments characteristic of fungi, the kingdom of the organism is Fungi and the domain is Eukarya.

    I’m impressed by the lighting and image quality, but you might want your air-conditioning unit maintenanced!
