Type speciesParacamarosporium psoraleae (Crous & M.J. Wingf.) Wijayaw. & K.D. Hyde, Cryptog. Mycol. 35(2): 185 (2014).

Camarosporium psoraleae Crous & M.J. Wingf., in Crous et al., Persoonia 31: 235 (2013).

Notes – Wijayawardene et al. (2014c) introduced Paracamarosporium to accommodate Camarosporium psoraleae. Subsequently, Crous et al. (2015b) added Microdiplodia hawaiiensis (Paracamarosporium hawaiiense), Camarosporium leucadendri (Paracamarosporium leucadendri and Paracamarosporium fagi to the genus. Later, Wijayawardene et al. (2016b) introduced Paracamarosporium fungicola which was previously known as Paraconiothyrium fungicola and P. tamaricis introduced by Thambugala et al. (2017a). Paracamarosporium mamanes was introduced by Crous & Groenewald (2017). There are seven Paracamarosporium epithets in Species Fungorum (2020). Both Paracamarosporium and Pseudocamarosporium have pycnidial conidiomata, enteroblastic and phialidic conidiogenesis with percurrent proliferation and muriform conidia (Wijayawardene et al. 2014c). However, Paracamarosporium is distinct from the latter in having hyaline, smooth-walled, guttulate, bacilliform to subcylindrical microconidia (Wijayawardene et al. 2014c).
