Observation 117881: Mucor racemosus Bull.
When: 2012-11-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This is my fungus from squirrel dung on Sproul Plaza, Berkeley, CA 94720.

I subcultured it for 3 times and the macroscopic feature is just white threads. All pictures are microscopic.

While BLASTing my sequences on http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov,
the blasting result showed that my fungus from dung is Mucor racemosus(總狀毛黴).

This fungus rots fruits and the plant Portulaca oleracea (Purslane, 馬齒莧) is its inhibitor.
