Please note , variation occurs when dealing with a natural product that grows naturally, they grow how they want and so you should expect some variation between each mushroom as they can vary in colour, size, shape, etc. The catpillar body can have twists and bends, they are not all perfectly straight, the "horn", the mushroom body prodruding from the head can be long and short, they can have a single tip or it can split into two tips, it can be curved and can contain twists, the colour of the catipillar body can range from dark brown to bright orange, the bodies can be large and small and there can be many other variations and this is true between individual mushrooms and batches, so you should be ware of this when ordering such a product, not every muchroom can be exactly the same. This particular Cordyceps species does actually burst from the head of the caterpillar and this can distort or even obliterate the head of the caterpillar, this is both common and normal for this Cordyceps species, this is just one variation and so please be aware that not every mushroom is going to look identical but you will be sent the best specimens from our current batch, this is the only constant.
Genuine Cordyceps sinensis (Ophiocordyceps sinensis) mushroom also known as " Caterpillar Fungus ". High quality, whole dried mushrooms.One of the world's best known medicinal mushrooms and one of the most prized species, partly due to its very high concentration of antioxidant compounds within the fruit body and so is widely used in anti-ageing remedies; be sure to look on-line for published peer-reviewed research papers on the potential medicinal properties of Cordyceps sinensis. Cordyceps sinensis is in the same genus as the well known "zombie ant fungus" (Ophiocordyceps unilateralis) where the spores infect an ant, altering its behaviour so that it will find a suitable environment to support mushroom development, it will climb high in the jungle canopy before clamping on foliage where the ant dies and the fungus uses the ants body as a food source for mushroom development. A mushroom will grow out of the ant, releasing spores that will complete the cycle by infecting more ants. Back to Cordyceps sinensis , we will ensure that mushrooms are sent whole but due to their fragile nature, the thin body of the mushroom may snap. Although the colonised dried caterpillar is much stronger and so it is only the thin fruit body that may snap off the dried body of the caterpillar but we will ensure that breakages are kept to a minimum by packing securely, as we do for all our products but in some cases it may be unavoidable. However, this will not effect the usability or the quality of the product in any way at all, it is only cosmetic. 1x Cordyceps sinensis mushroom (whole, dried). 5x Cordyceps sinensis mushroom (whole, dried).
