If you find insect and spider munching cordyceps fascinating, and you live in N. CA where they are rare to unknown, check out the May 13 BAMS meeting at UC Berkeley, where Todd Elliott, the “Cordyceps Kid”, will be our guest lecturer! Gruesome and glorious photographs and fascinating stories guaranteed.
