It's mold for sure... try cutting and salting.

Looks like trich to me! Definately not brusing, since it is green. Bad news for you, that casing looks like it is finished.

Best if you throw it out. Green molds are not very healthy.

You really have to be cautious when the one little spot is near or on the edge of a casing. IME, more often than not in those cases the green is running down the sides and may even be well-established underneath. This often is related to how much the substrate has shrunk, however. . .creating a little chasm that molds just love.
If this is your one and only casing, it might be worth trying to cut it out, treat with peroxide [I've never tried salting]. If there are other trays in there that might catch this thing, move it to another location [or throw away] asap.
Most/every mold that hit casings are airborne. Best of luck with this, it happens to everyone.

agreed! Generally don't play with your health. These green/black/red/purple motherfuckers can make you very ill....
Maybe you should toss it

Id start again, thats definatly mold. Leaving it aroudn is just letting it create more spores to infect later stuff.

Probably penicillium or some other nasty mold. toss it man.

"Trichoderma is often mistaken for Penicillium or Aspergillus molds(and vice versa), being that all three look very similar and are not easy to tell appart without the use of a microsope."

when in doubt throw it out.
