Camel cricket killed by fungus - Ceuthophilus maculatus -
Durham, New Hampshire, USA July 12, 2009
Found this insect covered in white mold and with a shriveled abdomen. Is there a place on BugGuide to put insects killed by or playing host to hosting fungi*?
(I said 'playing host to' since there is at least one fungus that I know of that grows on coccinellids but does not kill them to my knowledge.)
That said, I don't know how many species of camel crickets we have in New Hampshire, or how to tell the difference between them.
