Unless I missed something when scanning the Arthropod Pathogenic Fungi
article, I think this is the first example of Laboulbeniales fungi on a Psyllobora
species. I'm thinking this is P. vigintimaculata
, but would love expert input to definitively rule out P. borealis
before adding this post to the fungi article. I don't see any sign of the small lateral medial spot and the connection to the suture spot is obviously quite wide, but the heavy growth of fungus on the posterior makes assessing the lateral apical spots somewhat tricky. Any help very much appreciated!
