Type speciesCapnobotrys neesii S. Hughes, N.Z. Jl Bot. 8(2): 205 (1970).

NotesCapnobotrys is one of the synasexual morphs of Metacapnodiaceae, which was erected by Hughes (1970). Morphological characters of Capnobotrys species were provided in Hughes (1981). The genus differs from Metacapnodium in having 1-septate or somewhat 2- to multi-septate, conidia developing successively on clustered sympodulae on mononematous hyphae, while Metacapnodium has conidia develop successively on densely crowned sympodulae on synnematous hyphae, and 3–8-septate, ellipsoidal, 3-septate, brown ascospores (Hyde et al. 2013, key to genera of Metacapnodiaceae).
