Read More Info. About It (In English):

You should be familiar with Lumbricus if you are a fishing enthusiast. As a matter of fact, it is a genus rather than a specific earth worm species. That’s being said, it refers to many different earthworms, among which the most common species include Lumbricus rubellus, Lumbricus castaneus, Lumbricus terrestris, Lumbricus festivus, and Lumbricus badensis. As everyone knows, this animal lives in the soil, loosens the soil, improves the fertile, and promotes agricultural production. However, you may not know the fact that earthworm is also a Chinese herb, which is better known as Di Long and widely used in plenty of Chinese herbal remedies. So, what is Lumbricus medicinally?
Lumbricus description
First don’t mistaken it as Geosaurus just because they share the same name of Dilong in Chinese. Instead in TCM it means the dried body of Lumbricus kwangtungensis from Guangdong and Guangxi and Lumbricus nativus mainly from Qinghai, Qinghai, Henan, Shandong, and Shanxi. In addition, the former refers to Pheretima asiatica Michaelsen in the family Megascolecidae, which is generally considered of better quality. The latter comes in many varieties but Allolobophora caliginosa trapezoides are most common, and others include Pheretima vulgaris Chen, Pheretima guillelmi (Michaelsen), and Pheretima pectinifera Michaelsen.
Pheretima asiatica Michaelsen is in the shape of flaky elongated strip, twisted, 10 to 20cm in length, 1 to 2cm in width. Head and tail remains the original shape – slightly pointed front and blunt end. The whole body surface is with dense segments, among which the light-color segment between 14 to 16 segments is often called “white neck”. Back is brown or gray-red and belly is yellow brown. It is fishy, slightly salty, lightweight, brittle, easily broken, with thick wall and white section.
Main chemical constituents of Pheretima asiatica Michaelsen and Allolobophora caliginosa trapezoides include hemolysis ingredient of lumbritin, antipyretic ingredient of lumbrofebin, toxic ingredient of terrestro-lumbrilysin, hypoxanthine, xanthine, adenine, guanine, guanidine, choline, alanine, valine, leucine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, lysine, and other amino acids.
