For a minute there it had the look of a Mucor or some other interesting feature. Both the sparseness and upward orientation of the the strands are curious, neither being traits I would expect to see in basal mycelium.

edit: Upon yet another look, it would appear that they do in fact terminate in black, semi-/globular sporangia.

Yes it’s mycelium.

The image was heavily cropped to achieve max zoom. Why the interest in the mycelium?

what’s at the base?

Probably mycelium, but the photo is not quite hi res enough to tell.
