CULT FUNGI Result 1 Colony Sterile mold, does not produce conidia necessary for identification. 1 Colony Yeast not Cryptococcus neoformans.Explain ?

Neither can be identified as to what 'species' it is, but it doesn't matter since these are what we call 'contaminants'. I suspect this was a 'sputum' sample?
