Mycology tech (after inconclusive India Inks and mucicarmines): I'd go suspicious. I found a single colony on the plate. Too young for stains. I will follow up on Monday. It's a fast grower. 24-48 hours.
Me: This is a rare bug. I need to call ID, and make sure it is covered.
ID: Thanks so much for calling me. We aren't currently covered for that fungus. I'll add an extra anti-fungal, and make sure she is covered until Monday.
Me: I'm flying out early Monday morning. But the tech will call you with the results. Thanks for adding coverage; this is highly suspicious - I think you are being prudent.
Isn't that halo breathtaking? India ink and mucicarmine positive, in a perfect world. But we have to wait.
