Type speciesChaetocapnodium siamensis Hongsanan & K.D. Hyde, in Liu et al., Fungal Diversity: 72:69 (2015).

NotesChaetocapnodium is accepted in Capnodiaceae based on its saprobic habitat as sooty moulds, dark, superficial thalli on plant surfaces, and subglobose to globose ascomata with a central ostiole. Chaetocapnodium differs from other genera in having ascomatal setae (Liu et al. 2015). Phylogenetic analyses also supported its status in Capnodiaceae (Liu et al. 2015).
