Cirrus spissatus lightnning ?

I recently read somewhere, that the top of a thunder cloud can actually have it's fiberous top blown away from the main body of the cloud. The artical also said that the spissatus, even though removed from the main body of the cloud can still produce lightning. Has anyone actually observed this ?

I did however find this reference:
Lace lightning is occasionally seen moving acrossthe sky through a heavy cirrus spissatus cloud layer well downstream of larger thunderstorms.
It appears tomove across the sky in pulses forming a fine weblike orlacelike network through the cirrus cloud.
