These are silkworm caterpillar that were inoculated live with Cordyceps militaris. The result are these fully myceliated silkworms with multiple Cordyceps ascocarp (fruiting bodies) emerging. Cordyceps is a supreme yang tonic--the result of growing cordyceps on true-to-wild, insect substrate, which are much richer in protein and more yang in nature than grain, in addition to being alive when infected, is that a much more yang nature is imparted to the herb. Silkworm Cordyceps is 1/10th or less the cost of wild cordyceps and offers a true-equivalent--while wild cordyceps is facing extinction due to overharvesting.
Silkworm alone are commonly eaten in Asia. Silkworm is also a common herb in TCM that does not contain any of the toxicity of the other insects found in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia. Of course, the makeup of the insect is completely altered by the invading Cordyceps.
