Cordyceps is a genus of ascomycete (Sac Fungi) fungi that includes about 400 described species. All Cordyceps species are endoparasitoids, mainly on insects and other arthropods (they are thus entomopathogenic fungi); a few are parasitic on other fungi. The best-known species of the genus is Cordyceps Sinensis, first recorded as yartsa gunbu in Tibet in the 15th Century. Cordyceps Sinensis, known in English commonly as caterpillar fungus is a precious ingredient in oriental medicines, such as Traditional Chinese Medicines and Traditional Tibetan Medicine.
