Method: To observe the larva and stroma of Cordyceps family with macroscopic identification method, and with powder microscopic identification method. Result and Conclusion: For macroscopic, only stroma of C. sinensis is mostly non-inflated, and un-obtuse at the tip, the caterpillar annulations of C. sinensis and the C. gracilis is distinct, about 20-30, and feet of above two are 8 pairs, 4 of 8 pairs are relatively distinct.
