insect host was a moth, about 3 cm long.
What part is insect and what part is fungus?? (And if someone has time, what is an “anamorph”? And why does it get special distinct generic status?)
how big was the insect host?
This is the anamorph of a Cordyceps, formally assigned to the genus Isaria. (Perhaps Isaria sinclairii ?)
Cool fungus. Cordyceps species are soooo weird. Thanks for posting
Very strange and nice to see! We have nothing like this in California.
