Description

This is an Asian Lady Bug which is infected with the Green Beetle Hanger fungus.

This observation is for the fungus infection that has attacked the beetle.
The original observation for the lady beetle is here:

Amazingly, this fungus infection does not interfere with the beetle's life really -- they feed, they mate, and carry on as normal.

I can't help thinking it must be uncomfortable at the very least!
