Is that a 2.5-inch long beetle?

Looks almost like a June bug, but well mummified. What do you think the host was, Eduardo?

Kobayasi et al. came up with Cordyceps amazonica and its two varieties, recombined as Ophiocordyceps etc. by Spatafora et al., though what distinguishes the three I’m still not certain. I’m sure I’ve got a paper around here somewhere…
