Wow! Nice up close shot, lol! I am sorry to hear the bad news though. The good news is there is still a lot of root left that is not completely rotted. But honestly I have no idea it is kinda weird how there are little spots where you can see it starting. I don't have any experience with rot due to fungus, bacteria, or salt but maybe someone else does. What was the substrate it was potted in and watering habits? I have not grown a Angreacum so I am not familiar with it but hopefully someone can offer some advice that has Sorry I can't be more helpfull

Too much water, it is sure the root live in high humidity environment. This angreacum live in this pot for more then 1 year, and i think the problem was new because just a little portion of the root was turned black!! So, to much water enchange fungis or what!!???

My camera was a old nikon D70 with macro lens, speedlight, etc.!!
