Excellent work Laurie!! I really enjoyed seeing this up close like this. Did the victim look like this? Mortal Fungus (feel free to delete this comment in case you don't find it appropriate)

Thanks John - yes not disimilar to that, a slightly different shape to the abdomen but the underside almost entirely covered and the topside just split open between the 'panels' of the abdomen. There seems to be quite a lot of this stuff around this year...

Brilliantly detailed view. I think I must have found this example post-dispersal perhaps: www.flickr.com/photos/domgreves/9240787189/
