Caption: Moth killed by parasitic Cordyceps fungus. Cordyceps is a parasitic fungus that infects and kills insects. It alters the behaviour of its host, ensuring that it will die in a high place before erupting fruiting bodies from its body, so the spores spread more widely. Filmed in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
