Yea, it could be an entomopathogen, but there’s no visible perithecia, and no trace of a host. Agreed, it does have that look, particularly in the long, wiry, black stipe topped with a fatter, rounder, colorful apex, but that’s unfortunately not enough to go on for an ID. This observation, like its many cousins from around the same time period, is likely to forever resist identification.

Looks like it might be a species of Ophiocordyceps, such as O. nutans
