Unknown Environmental Swab from Handrail

Outdoor wood railing was swabbed onto TSA and grown for 48 hrs at 37 degrees C, then allowed to grow at room temperature for 72 hrs the held at refrigerated temperature for a month. This is a close up of some of the organisms that grew. One was a white circular fungal colony with hyphae, the other was a mucoid brown with lobate edges and a rhizoid/brain like appearance throughout the colony.
