As far as I know, the agave worm is also known as the Maguey worm (Gusano 
roja), which, in addition to mezcal, is also served in tortillas in some 
restaurants in Mexico

Dr David I. Gibson (D.Gibson at nhm.ac.uk) wrote:

: If any one knows the generic name of the 'agave' worm, which inhabits 
: bottles of mescal, I could check whether we have any records of helminths 
: which have been recorded from it; though, in view of its origin in a cactus, 
: I think that this is doubtful.
