Generally speaking, no - context-free hashes can pretty easily look like each other; many are recognized by length. Because of this (and varying hashing schemes), UNIX-like systems usually prefix a designator to their hashes, which is usually documented in the system's crypt(3). JtR's code (specifically src/*_fmt.c) is the single most complete, centralized documentation I know of. If you read through some of those files, you'll notice that a lot of the identification is programmatic - length is only one of many calculations to see if a hash is a particular format.
