Hello
The caterpillar infesting your mushroom seems to be a butterfly or moth larvae.
I suggest that you capture and destroy the adult stage and look for the eggs in your growth room to destroy before they hatch.

It is a caterpillar. They eat leaves and not fungi. There are many types of insects that eat mushrooms but I do not think this type of caterpillar is eating the mushroom. Do you have questions of the damage. Are you growing the fungi?
