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.

~12mm long
Only the female has the red eyes.
I never realised how long their tongue was. Sometimes inverts stick their tongue out in the fridge, so I took the oppotunity to record it.
It's 4mm long, 1/3 of the whole body length!
Unfortunately as soon as she woke up she went into flying mode, so no nice profile shot of her standing normally.
We then release her into the Melaleuca lanceolata where we found her.
Here's another nesting:
