Re: Fungi Sp.?

No, not a fungus but a lichen.

It's a Peltigera species and I suspect Peltigera membranacea, but a close look at the rhizines is necessary to take it further.

Re: Red Hyphomycete?

Thanks Chris, ... always helpful even without a result. I called them filaments as I was working on freshwater algae and thought this might have been an epiphyte, bun no chloroplasts found. Rather than epiphytic, the basal cells seem embedded. Diatoms I ignore (not enough lifetimes) but the green on...

I have exaggerated the lighting on one image to show the basal structure which looks pseudoparenchymatous. No conidio...
