Looks like Cordyceps possibly

Looks like Cordyceps possibly C. longisegmentis which I have not seen before and may be rather rare. They grow on buried insect pupae or other fungi.

Oops just seen the other copy

Oops just seen the other copy of this observation with other comments about Cordyceps. Perhaps delete this observation with my comments on and put the name on the other observation.
