ABSTRACT

The Liteatual Study on the Origin of QCo applied to 『Dongyi Suse Bowon』 of Korean Sasang Constitutional Medicine Kwon Seung-Man, Kim Il-Hwan, Park Hye-Sun, Kim Hyo-Soo, Yim Chi-Hye, Cho Jae-Seung Dept. of Sasang Constitutional Medicine, College of Oriental Medicine, Dong-Shin Univ. 1. Objectives and Methods The original insect of QiCao is described as the larvae of Holotrichia diomphalia Bates (Scarabaeidae) in oriental medicine literatures. Traditionally QiCao inhabit on rotting wood, compost, and organic debris of soil or thatched roofs. They have the very important distinguishing mark that wriggle along on their back through rotting wood, compost etc. and they never do inflict the living crops. but, Holotrichia diomphalia Bates as the QiCao is not right because of many questions, such as Holotrichia are the harmful insects eat into farm products, and those don't match well with korean farmers' moods if their cultivated lands are turned over for collecting QiCao larvae, and especially they don't go on using their back. 2. Results and Conclusions Accordingly, in the conclusion of this subject it is reported that the original insect of QiCao is the larvae of Korean Cetoniidae(Coleoptera; Scarabaeoidea) insects including Genus Protaetia Burmeister(Protaetia orientalis submarmorea Burmeister, P.brevitarsis seulensis Kolbe, etc.) and the larvae of Korean Cetoniinae insects. Also, those were the original larvae of QiCao that were applied to not only 'DongEuiBoGam' but also 'Dongyi Suse Bowon prescriptions'. Those feed on rotting wood, compost, and organic debris of soil or thatched roofs.
