A strain of Hirsutella sinensis Liu et al. was isolated from a cadaver of Hepialus armoricanus Oberth. infected by Cordyceps sinensis (Berk.) Sacc. RAPD-PCR techniques were used to study the relationship between H. sinensis and C. sinensis. Twenty random primers were screened and genomic DNA spectra of C. sinensis and H. sinensis were obtained with 8 primers, with the similarity between the 2 species at 96%, confirming that H. sinensis is the anamorph of C. sinensis.
