Type species – Capnokyma corticola S. Hughes, N.Z. Jl Bot. 13(4): 638 (1975).
Notes – Capnokyma was established by Hughes (1975), with the type species C. corticola. The genus is recognized by its erect setae-like conidiophores, blastic conidiogenesis, sessile, ellipsoidal to subcylindrical, straight or curved, 3- to multi-septate, subhyaline to dark brown phragmoconidia, with tapered ends (Eriksson 1981, Hughes 1976, Hughes & Seifert 2012). Capnodyma corticola was found in association with Euantennaria mucronata and Spiropes dictyosporus in sooty mould colonies (Seifert & Hughes 2000). No culture and sequence data available to explain these relationships.
