Type species – Capnodium salicinum Mont., Annls Sci. Nat., Bot., sér. 3 11: 234 (1849).
Notes – Capnodium is the type genus of Capnodiaceae, and it was established by Montagne (1849) based on Fumago citri (Friend 1965). Capnodium is the sexual morph of Polychaeton, thus Capnodium was selected for conservation under the “1F1N” by Chomnunti et al. (2011). There are little sequence data for Capnodium species available in GenBank. More collections and sequence data are needed.
