Type speciesCamarops hypoxyloides P. Karst.

Notes – Karsten (1873) introduced Camarops based on C. hypoxyloides. The name Bolinia was first introduced as a subgenus by Nitschke (1867) and raised to generic rank by Saccardo (1882). Shear (1938) considered Bolinia tubulina to be a homonym of Camarops tubulina. Nannfeldt (1972) reviewed the taxonomy of these taxa and concluded that Camarops and Bolinia are two different genera, but having similar characters. Lumbsch & Huhndorf (2010) proposed Bolinia to be a synonym of Camarops.
