Origin: This wording is misleading, they cannot be the same organism. They are very different, so they are just counterparts. Also, scientific names need to be itallic, its a rule.
Parasect resembles a {{wp|cicada}} {{wp|Nymph (biology)|nymph}}. It may also be based on a {{wp|hermit crab}} with a {{wp|mushroom}} for a shell.
The fungus on Parasect is identified as [[tochukaso]], which is also the (japonese name for ''{{wp|Ophiocordyceps sinensis}})'', an {{wp|Parasitoid|endoparasitoid}} that replaces the host tissue and can affect theits behavior of its {{wp|insect}} host.
