by Smithjw reminded me of a bizarre specimen I collected way back on May 10, 1970 (The last time I checked, BugGuide would not accept dates this ancient). The specimen appeared to be stuck in a spot of resin on a small dead twig on a pine tree. I puzzled over the strange appendages that appeared to sprout from the exact positions normally occupied by wings, and near the proper position for an ovipositer. I eventually concluded that this was a fungus that had grown out of the corpse.
