I do have the dried mushroom… not the insect. I haven’t ever heard of any C. militaris look-alikes.

Dropped a FB note to Larry Evans and Daniel Winkler about your sample

about what else this could be? The host insect pupa is seen in the photo.

I have dried the specimen, if anyone is interested in looking at it…
