This observation is for the clusters of spikes on top of the mushroom in https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/97729121. @harsiparker and @ranmofod suggested that I look more closely at the spikes because they could be entomopathogenic fungi. I cut off a chunk of material around one cluster, and I realized that it was actually growing out of a decayed piece of wood that was lying across the top of the mushroom. There was a white spore-like powder under the spikes (3rd photo). Then I scraped the wood away from the spikes on one side. They were growing out of what looked like an insect pupa in a tunnel. I also noticed other tunnels full of sawdust within the wood (7th photo).

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/98231684 and https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/98232161 show arthropods that were on the large mushroom.

Originally I had no idea what this was. I thought it was a cordyceps as it has erupted from the body of a katydid or grasshopper. Someone has suggested pin mold, another has suggested slime mold.
Found positioned on a decaying log in subtropical rainforest next to a creek. We have recently had lots of rain and high humidity.

Via a cordyceps identification page on Facebook, Nigel Hywel-Jones commented "It is indeed spectacular, and rare. In 35+ years and over 20,000 collections in 12 countries I have found it once. On an adult moth. That is how rare it is. It is in the genus Sporodiniella and is a Zygomycete. It looks similar to Sporodiniella umbellata."

So I have now listed it as such.

Gills decurrent. Pileipellis a smooth clamped cutis without cystidia. 4-spored, inamyloid, subglobose with apiculus. Spores length=4.1–5.0µm (µ=4.5, σ=0.24), width=3.2–4.1µm (µ=3.7, σ=0.26), Q=1.1–1.4µm (µ=1.21, σ=0.08), n=20 minus apiculus. This is my best approximation to C. apricosus. The sequence data indicate it is Cuphophyllus section adonidi

Description

A set of around 10 shallow digs 3-5 cm deep tipped me off. Raking back the layer of Redwood needles another 2-5 cm (total depth probably something like 4-8 cm) turned up a single fruitbody situated amongst a lot of branched white rhizomorphs (see photos). Soil and humus had a strong vegetal odor – not great but not particularly unpleasant.
Peridium blushed rosy and royal purple!
Cross-sectioned fruitbody shows many olive-colored locules (likely paler because the fruitbody is small and immature).

Apparently has not been recorded in Santa Cruz County since the 80s, and only found a few times anywhere in recent decades.
