mold on the pumpkin

Molds growing on the upside-down cap of my jack o'lantern. If I had to guess I'd say:

the stuff that's staining the flesh red-pink is a species of Fusarium, and so is the white mycelium in the foreground.

the grey fuzz right in the center is a Rhizopus.

the other dark grey-green patches are a Cladosporium

and there are a few patches of bluish Pencillium

I didn't look at these under my microscope, so I can't say more.
