Strange Mold?

Have any of you experienced a dark brown mold growing on the edge of the bus floors between the sides of the bus and floor. It appears as a dry dark flaky substance and comes off in dry flaky blobs.

If examined under magnification it has altering dark and light stripes about 30 strips to the inch. If not specifically this, have you experience any mold and can you recommend a treatment for that could kill this off without damaging the bus?

Thanks in advance.

My bus number (if any): RCL2559
