The host is a Cicada nymph, it can be seen in one of my other observations of that fungus.

Hi Britney, this is actually quite common in late summer early autumn here in New Zealand, there has recently been a new drug developed for the treatment of MS, the chinese have known about the medicinal properties for a very long time and the Māori people used it to make ink for their tribal tattoos.

Rare and neat find.

I see that you have found these before. Very interesting medicinal properties. Cool find!
