Type species – Apiocamarops alba Samuels & J.D. Rogers
Notes – Apiocamarops is characterized by ascomata surrounded by furfuraceous outer coating, cylindrical asci and brown ascospores (Samuels & Rogers 1987). Four species were accommodated in Apiocamarops (A. alba, A. cryptocellula, A. luquilloensis, and A. pulvinata) and they are related to Camarops with turbinate stromata and ascospores with a germ pore at one end (Samuels & Rogers 1987, Rogers & Samuels 1988, Reagan & Waide 1996, Rogers & Ju 2003). Apiocamarops has furfuraceous, hyaline ascomata and 1-septate ascospores and differs from Camarops which has black ascomata and aseptate ascospores (Samuels & Rogers 1987).
