If Cordyceps capitata, probably growing on Elaphomyces

E. granulatus is the most abundant hypogeous fungi of the Northern Hemisphere, according to Dr. Alexander H. Smith. E. muricatus is another possibility, but I think E. muricatus hosts Cordyceps ophoglosoides (or something like that).

I didn’t realize what it was until after David saw it, by then I had left the spot where I picked them from. I was also chagrined in that I didn’t dig it up.

Therefore, I don’t know the host.
