I am going to isolate some fungi from food samples. And, facing problems to identify the fungus (attached pictures). It is a 10-day culture on PDA. I need your urgent help. Thanks.

I am facing some problems in isolation and identification of fungi from food sample. Can you identify the fungus that I am attaching here (two pictures). It is a 10-day culture on PDA. Thanks.

I'm not a mycologist, but don't you need to have a picture of the spores?

I couldn't open/enlarge the pictures but as hobglobin said, you'll need alot more than those for an identification.
