Emerging from large decaying hardwood log in the bottom of low moist woodland draw dominated by paw paw trees. Locally abundant on log and absent on nearby logs. Specimens appear to be parasitizing Ophiocordyceps variabilis and/or directly competing for its larval host.

Inat's computer vision seems to convey Ophiocordyceps robertsii, which is a good comparison except for location. The caterpillar was completely mummified. It was hardened and intact. It was buried under a moss mound on the ground that includes what species I believe to be Thuidium delicatulum. I just happened to see the stroma above ground and commenced a gentle dig and found the caterpillar host just beneath the surface. This was in cove forest habitat near a stream in the ground. Nearby trees are Birch, Hemlock, Pine, Oak, and a nice diversity of other trees and plants.
