Cordyceps gunii (dark vegetable caterpillar, sometimes called zombie fungi is an intriguing fungus. Cordyceps are parasitic fungi, but rather than choose a plant as a host, they attack insect larvae. the mycelium (underground mass of microscopic fungi filaments called hyphae) of cordyceps gunnii invades a moth lava, feeding on it and eventually replacing the host tissue. An elongated fruiting body is then sent to the surface to distribute spores to aid in the spreading of the fungus. if you look closely at this sculpture you will see a moth larva under the surface that one of the zombies is growing from.
