Yes, it was most likely a Penicillium sp, but since it was NOT checked under a microscope, there is no way to tell for positive from the photo.

I’d guess Penicillium

Wasn’t it Penicillium that was first found on oranges? But if not, I’d have to agree with Tom: definately orange peel fungus.

the mold is probably an Aspergillus or Penicillium, but impossible to tell.
