Observation 6300: Cordyceps militaris (L.) Fr.
When: 2006-07-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Another neat fungus that is inexcusably underrepresented on this fine website. According to David Attenborough in the Planet Earth series :) Cordyceps are specific to a single insect species for their hosts in the tropics. Given the abundance of these throughout the summer in the Smokies, I somehow doubt that this particular Cordyceps is so finicky.
