Default Pellicle Photo Collection

I have a growth on an all brett C beer, but don't know what the heck it is. I've searched through photos and haven't found what I'm looking for. Nor have I found a thread where there's a compilation of brett pellicles. This is an opportunity for any brewer to find what is growing in their beer and if it's what's "traditionally" the pellicle formation for brett X.

It would be extremely helpful if people would share their pellicle photos. I think it can be a learning experience just seeing the different types there are since I am guessing they sure as hell aren't all the same. There's pedio, lacto and there are various types of brett strains. Hopefully we can get pictures and examples of each. Are pelllicles like fingerprints? Are they always different? I'm almost willing to bet the answer is yes. Hopefully this thread will help us take a step in deciphering just that.

here's a photo from google images of LACTO:


and here's my brett L and brett B mix pellicle at 10 months:


There are a lot of experienced people on these boards and I would really appreciate if we could get a collection of pellicle photos up for comparison. Let's call it research I'll have a photo of my mystery pellicle up tomorrow to see if anyone knows what the heck it is and if truly is from brett.

The second is the most beautiful and disgusting thing I've seen.

I agree with you, yellow. I bet underneath that nasty goodness there is a fine brew developing.

Flander's Red in secondary pitched with Rodenbach dregs after US-05 initial fermentation. Apparently Rodenbach is pasteurized or centrifuged or something so who the heck knows whats growing in there, starting to taste very good though(6 months):





Cream Ale/Ithaca Brute clone attempt in secondary fermented with Brett L.(1 month) :
