Caption: Mouldy milk. Close-up of mould on the surface of milk. Mould is the fuzzy, cobweb-like growth produced on organic matter by several different types of fungi. The moulds here began as microscopic, airborne spores. On contact with the moist surface of the milk they germinated. Rapid spread formed the mycelia (fungal bodies) made up of fine networks of filaments (hyphae). Root-like rhizoids (unseen) penetrate downwards into the milk, secreting enzymes and absorbing water and sugars.
