Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Possible infestation in Diptera collection?

Is this a possible infestation in my collection? There are lots of these "threads" all over the insect, the clearest photo i could get was on the antennae.
Are these signs of an infestation or just dust/fibres?

It is fungus and a sign that your collection is kept in circumstances that are too humid.
