Cordyceps are a fungi that infects the host (in this case a beetle) and then instructs the victim to climb as high as possible, where it will die and sprout fruiting bodies. Eventually, the fruiting bodies will erupt and ejecting spores to the wind, which will travel far and wide looking for new hosts.

Mold of the Week: Nigrospora.  This rapidly growing woolly mold has an uncertain pathogenicity.  It has been isolated from skin leasions of a leukemic patient and from a case with keratitis.  However, its pathogenic role as a causative agent is not well-known. #airallergen #cleanair #gotmold #motw #moldoftheweek
