    Sorry, can't help. I thought there would be a webpage or book online with a key to identify fungi but apparently couldn't find one. Do you mind if I ask why you were trying to isolate these fungi? Do you think it's a wood-rot fungi with lignases and/ or cellulases (using the apple juice means you might get microbes that aren't necessarily wood-degrading specialists, using the sugar from the apple as a carbon source). You could always send away a sample for 18S rRNA sequencing to identify it.

    I would say your best bet is to post them to http://mushroomobserver.org

    Like I said, go to mushroomobserver. they are Mycologists and fungus enthusiasts. We are general science amateurs, I dont think there are any mycologists here.

    I'm a mycologist and suggest you need to follow the simple key provided by Bubiko. Both pictures appear to include zygomycetes - but perhaps not pure culture. In any case, you'll need some microscopic observations to take them even to genus.
