I found this in a corner of my whole grain brown rice cased in verm:



White pinheads on long stalks. I would guess pinhead mold, but the FAQ tells me the heads should be black.
I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be there,so I removed all I could see, but not before taking a picture. Is there any hope for this one or is it time to bury it?
