Description

Found 6 Drosophila repleta dead with fruiting bodies starting today.

Found one fly that was still just barely moving, so I trained the cellphone on it for 2 hours and got this cool video of the fungal infection progressing:

Description

Small (~1.5 cm) irregular orange puffball-like fungi. At first glance they look like orange stones half-pressed into the ground.

Last year in April I brought home:

This observation doesn't look like the two previous hosts to me so maybe its jumped once again!

Description

My ability to identify species in this genus is lacking. However, F. K. Sparrow reported this species from this same location in 1952; so, I'm going to assume I'm seeing the same species.

Sparrow, FK. 1952. Mycologia 44(6): 759-772.

Description from Wikipedia

Zygomycota, or zygote fungi, is a phylum of fungi. The name comes from zygosporangia, where resistant spherical spores are formed during sexual reproduction. Approximately 1060 species are known. They are mostly terrestrial in habitat, living in soil or on decaying plant or animal material. Some are parasites of plants, insects, and small animals, while others form symbiotic relationships with plants. Zygomycete hyphae may be coenocytic, forming septa only where gametes are formed or to wall off...
