{{Bulbanews|On the Origin of Species: Paras and Parasect}}
The fungus on Parasect is identified as [[tochukaso]], an {{wp|Parasitoid|endoparasitoid}} that replaces the host tissue and can affect the behavior of its {{wp|insect}} host. The base insect is a deformed version of what is probably a {{wp|cicada}} {{wp|Nymph (biology)|nymph}}, the parasitic fungi having caused a form of {{wp|neoteny}}.
