Species list from Devil’s Hollow on 06/08/2019

As the cicadas from Brood VIII start to hatch in the area look for dead ones where the abdomen is missing or been filled with a pale yellow fungal growth. This is Massospora cicadina or the Flying salt shaker of death. Another interesting find was a crust fungus Peniophora violaceolivida which seems to be rarely reported.
