Aweto is not what people think to be an insect in winter and become grass in summer. However, it is the parasitism of fungus in insect called Chinese caterpillar fungus

The insects for aweto to live in are aweto hepialid moths, which usually grow in brush woods and meadows at the shady or semi-shady slopes with an altitude of 3,000-5,000m, as insect, aweto hepialid moths have a complete life cycle, including four statuses: ovum, larva, nymph and moth (namely the imago). 

The aweto fungi move into the larva body of aweto hepialid moths in the first twenty days of September each year, they spread all over the months. And cohere together with soil. In the last ten days of September, the head of the parasitical larva body develops a stroma of one centimeter high, living through the winter in the frozen earth. At the beginning of May the next year, the stromatic awetos grow out of the earth. Finally, in the last ten days of June, the stroma becomes obese, and the insect body underground gradually rots and becomes empty. And then it becomes useless in medicine. So the best time to collect awetos is from the last ten days of May to the last ten days of June each year.
