Not sure what the specifics of this question is wanting to know. Mycelium are root like fungi normally present in the soil, they don’t live in humans as they tend to survive on decomposing plants.

Did you mean *humus?*

If you are referring to “mushroom infections” on human beings, the good news is this is science fiction. The types of fungi that infect humans don’t produce the long thread-like hairs you’re asking about.

If you meant *humus*, or the broken down once-living stuff in top soil, mycelium wound up through all that tighter them my ex-girlfriend with the JV football team. Fungus digests and breaks down complex stuff, like a leaf, and turns produces the stuff other plants need to survive.

Exactly what is the question?

If you are asking whether or not humans can host fungal mycelium, the answer is absolutely yes. There are a number of conditions that are caused by aggressive mycelium colonization of human tissues, especially but not limited to the skin. Ringworm is an example.
