Yes, The parasite eats away the inside leading to the collapse of the ball as seen here. Leaving behind a somewhat Gigeresque scene :)

Do you know something about physiological process? Does it suck out nutrients from hyphae or digestst hyphae and spores?

note even though the ball is totally empty the mycelium still had it firmly attached to the ground

I see, thank you! It might mean that parasite feeds on spores.
