I updated the species name associated with this image on Wikimedia Commons (the media server) and replaced it in the six different language wikipedias it was used in. With too many MO images on Wikimedia Commons to police manually, someone (over there) should write an automated script to look for new updated species names back here at MO. I don’t have that kind of programming skill. As they say, you can contribute to Wikipedia!

I believe this could be Gibellula pulchra or at lest that’s what I have been told:)

doesn’t look terribly similar to the other examples of B. bassiana here, or to any others I’ve seen. The fungus looks like it consists of tiny pulverous capitate protrusions as opposed to a sort of homogenous white mass emanating from spaces in the exoskeleton as is typical for B. bassiana. Unless this anamorph is highly variable, my vote is for something else.
