your millipede
Charley Eiseman pointed out this image to me. It appears it was killed by a fungus that I am studying. If you have a specimen (or find another like it), I would LOVE to see it, as I have no records of the fungus from your area.

Invaded Millipede
Kathie : I am glad you found something interesting in the picture. Unfortunately the pictures are not that good and I don't have any more pictures of the specimen. I am also interested in fungi and I am a member of the Gulf States Mycological Society. I am not a professional but like to collect and learn about them. Is this a Cordyceps ? Do you know or suspect the specific fungus in this case? Should we post the pictures in the Mushroom Observer web site?

millipede fungus
It looks very much like a fungus in the order Entomophthorales which I have been finding in the northeast on polydesmid millipedes. If you find more specimens or have questions, please email me at the email address in my profile.
