appears to be danging. But would need a nearby collection to identify the species which this observation was likely growing from. Parasitized Elaphomyces difficult/impossible to identify to species. Need a non-parasitized collection for identification.

But isn’t there Elaphomyces on the base of the shroom dangling?

Haven’t heard this new name for what used to be Cordyceps o. Should have been a collection of Elaphomyces nearby.
