Is this mold?

dave123333September 29, 2013

See attached photograph. Is this mold? I am seeing these white spots on exactly two floor boards in a basement (none of the other floor boards have a single white spot). At first glance it looks like paint to me but after looking closer I'm not so sure. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe.

But the fact that it's so clearly limited to one board might mean it's simply some drywall residue or the like. Or maybe mould was growing on that one board before it was put down as subfloor.
