Closer examination showed that it hadn't completely dissapeared.
The fungus had dissolved into just a trace of red on the exposed root, with the tip now looking like a shrunk trumpet opening.
I've enhanced the red a bit so it's easier to see, in reality it was more pale, so pale can't see it from more than a few feet away.
