Type species – Pustulipora corticola P.F. Cannon

Notes – The monotypic genus Pustulipora was introduced by Cannon (1982) with P. corticola occurring on the bark. Pustulipora can be distinguished from Dactylidispora by its blistered, rarely cushion-like structures surrounding the germ pore (Cannon 1982). The asexual morph of the genus is undetermined.
