Anyone recognize what's left of this moth, beyond Noctuoidea?

Moved from Moths.

Very cool!
FYI I sent this pic and link to Bob Patterson. Maybe he'll have some insight as to the moth.

Bob Patterson's comments:
"I don't have anything to add. First case of that I saw involved a Spinx Moth."

Beauveria fungus?
Not any help on the moth, but I found one similar a couple years ago that my mycologist friend tentatively identified here.

Great, thanks!
I was interested in that too, but didn't think anyone would have a clue.
Would your friend be willing to examine specimens? I considered collecting this, but didn't know who I would give it to.
