“In the Arandic [language] system, edible grubs are a part of the plant on which they are found, in much the same way a fruit or tuber is. Note that it is not known whether all edible grubs present in one tree species (named the same in Arandic languages) are a single scientific species or whether numerous species can live in a single plant.” Turpin et al. 2013 Journal of Ethnobiology 33(1):18.
