This “APPEARS” to possibly be an Amanita consumed by a mold of some sort. That is only a very uneducated guess. I hope someone here may have some insight as to what is happening with with this. Thanks!

I saw him also but only after I had uploaded photo from camera to PC. Contemplated on that being a possible cause but I can find no hard evidence to support that theory…

But I strongly suspect the spider is in Agelenidae.

and i do not know much about them neither, but I know quite a bit about filamentous mold, and it seem not likely

Thank you for your insight…

I will conduct further research into your proposed zygomycetes. The closest thing I have found to it was filamentous mold. But as you stated, no exact match.

seem like that for me, but it is probably parasited by a zygomycetes, albeit it look different than then one i usually see
