the likes of “moving” entomopathogens before (http://mushroomobserver.org/49723). as cool as it would be to discover a breed of Cordyceps zombies, stromata and all, ambulation in the “host” has a tendency to rule out entomopathogenic infection.

Woah, what is that?! The caterpillar seems alive, and not particularly attached to what I am assuming is the mushroom… But the mushroom does sort of look like an entomopathogenic fungi.
