Cordyceps is a Chinese medicine. It is a rare and precious traditional Chinese medicine. It is a form of fungus. It is a species of the larva and the larvae of the Hepidiaceae plant Cordyceps sinensis (BerK.) Sacc. It is called “Cordyceps sinensis” because of its “growth” process.

Hepialus moths reproduce and lay eggs in the soil, which then become larvae. Cordyceps fungus will invade the larvae, absorb its nutrients, and continue to multiply, causing the larvae to be filled with hyphae and die.

This is the “winter worm”. In the summer of the following year, the Cordyceps fungus grows into a purple-red grass with a height of 4 to 10 cm on the head of the larva.
