At first I only saw one mold, but zooming in I see definitely 2, perhaps 3 molds here. The green mold is so common and i forget its name. You can see a few small dots of brightish white, thats the same green mold in its pre-sporulation phase.

2nd mold, is the slightly greyish mold. i know this one by heart! its fleece mold! look into the ambrosia society if you're unsure about it. I work with it fairly often. Grab some of it off (try to avoid touching the green spores or the younger bright mold mycelium!) with clean tweezers and throw it into a container with some freshly cooked and cooled grain and it will spread pretty quickly, like a day or two. Interestingly enough it isn't long and fluffy like its "supposed" to be according to the ambrosia society's writings, but with experience I've learned that sometimes it grows super short hyphae and other times it grows longer. I think it has more to do with the available nutrition on the growing medium. it could also be a low viability spore due to the heating of the mushroom if it was a dried mushroom that later went moldy. either way if you let it grow you can nurture it back!

3rd mold is either a different white mold, fluffy amanita mycelium, or younger fleece.

goodluck!
