Jumping Spider killed by parasitic fungus by melvynyeo Jumping Spider killed by parasitic fungus by melvynyeo
Taken in Malaysia forest.

Many fungi are parasites on plants, animals (including humans), and other fungi. Serious pathogens of many cultivated plants causing extensive damage and losses to agriculture and forestry include the rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae,[171] tree pathogens such as Ophiostoma ulmi and Ophiostoma novo-ulmi causing Dutch elm disease[172] and Cryphonectria parasitica responsible for chestnut blight,[173] and plant pathogens in the genera Fusarium, Ustilago, Alternaria, and Cochliobolus.[150] Some carnivorous fungi, like Paecilomyces lilacinus, are predators of nematodes, which they capture using an array of specialized structures such as constricting rings or adhesive nets.[174] Many fungi that are plant pathogens, such as Magnaporthe oryzae, can switch from being biotrophic (parasitic on living plants) to being necrotrophic (feeding on the dead tissues of plants they have killed).[175]

Some fungi can cause serious diseases in humans, several of which may be fatal if untreated. These include aspergillosis, candidiasis, coccidioidomycosis, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, mycetomas, and paracoccidioidomycosis. Furthermore, persons with immuno-deficiencies are particularly susceptible to disease by genera such as Aspergillus, Candida, Cryptoccocus,[151][176][177] Histoplasma,[178] and Pneumocystis.[179] Other fungi can attack eyes, nails, hair, and especially skin, the so-called dermatophytic and keratinophilic fungi, and cause local infections such as ringworm and athlete's foot.[180] Fungal spores are also a cause of allergies, and fungi from different taxonomic groups can evoke allergic reactions.[181]

Something seems so oddly cute, sad, and tragic about this image as well as the stories. I think it has to do with those huge sunken in eyes.
