Notes: I isolated this specimen from dung. I found the dung in the trunk of an Oak tree at UC Berkeley. I placed the dung (it was small and looked like squirrel dung) in a glass jar with a wet paper towel. After a week, I had a pretty solid specimen (that is the image in the photos). I then isolated a sample on agar for 2 weeks, and ran a DNA analysis on it. The BLAST came back definitively Mucor, but the closest species was a 91% match for M. circinelloides. My guess is that this is another species of Mucor.
