Unidentified household fungus species

 photo P1030876_zpsvsdluudk.jpg
I wish there was an easy way to identify organisms like this in the field. The field, in this case, is a glass of dilute fruit juice that I left on the night stand for a couple days. The organism or organisms is/are one or more species of fungi that somehow make(s) little rafts out of its hyphae, floating on the surface of the liquid, feeding on sugars below, while producing green reproductive spores above. I eagerly await home DNA barcoding technology so that I can know the names of all the living things that share my home.

Give it a few days, collect it, and market it as a SCOBY. See what happens.

I do notice when I can see it! The app is somewhat lacking.
