Type speciesCamposporium antennatum Harkn., Bull. Calif. Acad. Sci. 1(no. 1): 37 (1884).

NotesCamposporium is characterized by dematiaceous conidiophores, terminal, integrated, denticulate conidiogenous cells, and cylindrical and elongate, multi-septate conidia with one or more cylindrical appendages at the apex (Hughes 1951b, Ellis 1971, Ichinoe 1971, Whitton et al. 2002). The sequence of Camposporium antennatum was provided by Crous et al. (2018b) and it clustered with Fusiconidium mackenziei in Melanommataceae. Hyde et al. (2020b) updated the taxonomic treatment of Camposporium and included the other three species in this genus. Whereas, Fusiconidium lycopodiellae was transferred to Camposporium as C. lycopodiellae (Hyde et al. 2020b).
