Type speciesCelosporium laricicola Tsuneda & M.L. Davey [as ‘larixicolum’], Botany 88(5): 473 (2010).

Notes – There is only one species of Celosporium. Celosporium is characterized by coelomycetous, dematiaceous hyphae forming terminal or intercalary, black, irregular shaped cellular clumps, with aggregated cellular clumps conidiomata, and 1–3-celled, hyaline endoconidia, released by cell-wall dissolution of the conidiogenous cells (Tsuneda et al. 2010). Based on molecular analysis Thambugala (2014a) placed Celosporium in Dothideales, genera incertae sedis. Crous (2018a) indicated that this genus clustered with Muellerites juniper and Neocelosporium eucalypti within Neocelosporiaceae.
