Observation 140208: Metacordyceps G.H. Sung, J.M. Sung, Hywel-Jones & Spatafora
When: 1998-08-17
Collection location: Yunnan, China [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: When I first found one of these, I thought it was some sort of Xylaria. Two weeks later, in Thailand, I found two fruit bodies joined and attached to an approx. 20 cm, underground larvae. These were clearly the same species as the one found in China.
I still don’t have a name for it.
