Observation 151437: Cordycipitaceae sensu lato
When: 2013-09-21
1700m
0 Sequences

Notes:
Similar to Cordyceps gracilioides, however it is probably not that species because it has multiple stroma.

Many fruit bodies growing on a log. The log had many Coleoptera and most were parasitized.

This observation is to make a collection number, photos will be uploaded later.

This log has three different probably undescribed Cordyceps s.l. species. They are microscopically and phylogenetically distinct.

I’m not aware of multiple stromata being an identifying feature for Ophiocordyceps_/against Cordyceps. do you have a reference?
