Camel cricket killed by fungus - Ceuthophilus maculatus - female

Camel cricket killed by fungus - Ceuthophilus maculatus - Female
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.

Moved from Ceuthophilus.

without having the specimen in hand,
I don't have high hopes of figuring out which species she is, but I'm going to try and identify and sort all of these on BugGuide soon.

Moved from ID Request.

Good luck!
