Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
A host-parasite
pair in which the
parasite mushroom
has taken over the
host bug. Prefers
damp places.
The bug host is
drained of energy
by the mushrooms
on its back. They
appear to do all
the thinking.
It stays mostly in
dark, damp places,
the preference not
of the bug, but
of the big mush-
rooms on its back.
The larger the
mushroom on its
back grows, the
stronger the mush-
room spores it
When nothing's
left to extract
from the bug, the
mushrooms on its
back leave spores
on the bug's egg.
