Plush Velvet

I neglected to hang this cheese curd before a quick trip to my Mother’s. When I returned two days later, it was coated with a snow-white velvety growth (which this picture does not do justice to.) I have seen this before, when I am being lazy behind in my cheesy chores. I like to think it is Geotrichum or Penicillium (which would be good), but it may be white Mucor (which would be bad).
