Type speciesMelanocamarosporium galiicola Wijayaw., Camporesi, Bhat & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Divers. 77: 160 (2016).

NotesMelanocamarosporium galiicola has pycnidial, subepidermal conidiomata, erumpent at maturity, dark brown to black, with a papillate ostiole, conidiogenous cells that are enteroblastic, phialidic, with periclinal thickenings, discrete, determinate, hyaline to subhyaline and oblong to ellipsoid conidia with a truncate base, obtuse at apex, muriform, with 2–4 transverse septa and 2–4 longitudinal septa, pale brown to medium brown (Wijayawardene et al. 2016a). The first camarosporium-like species introduced in Melanommataceae was based on morphological distinctness and phylogenetic analysis (Wijayawardene et al. 2014b, Tian et al. 2015b, Wijayawardene et al. 2016a). DNA sequence data are not available in GenBank, Pem et al. (2019d) introduced the second camarosporium-like genus Melanocamarosporioides which is similar to Melanocamarosporium.
