I've had pellicles from lacto. I have a Berliner going right now that formed a pellicle right away then it kicked off like sacc. Now that primary is done and I took a gravity reading (disturbed the co2 blanket) the other day a new pellicle is starting to form.
The lacto was cultured from grains in second runnings. The starter formed a pellicle in each step up after a heavy primary.
