    I've only seen fungus on lens once and it is a kind of sprawling structure. Like the veins on leaves.

    Do a search here and Google for "fungus on lens". Many many sample pictures.

    Fyi it usually resembles a web/root-like structure

    your picture is too small to make a positive ID... can be dust or can be fungus, can be anything.

    Usually, dots are dust. Your picture looks more like lots of little dots on the material holding the lens element.
    Fungus will look like a spider web and it's mostly sitting directly on the glass element.
