Hi
From just this photo it is impossible to even confirm that it is fungal. We would definitely need a more detailed one of both the top and the underside to start the id process.

Cladosporium sp. - probably one of the commonest genera on the planet, and the commonest genus encountered in the air-spora. A secondary coloniser, one often finds them as a contaminent of collections of other fungi.

who by their own admission is not particularly "knowledgeable" is a recipe for potential
