Type speciesSetocampanula taiwanensis Sivan. & W.H. Hsieh

NotesSetocampanula is a monotypic genus introduced by Sivanesan & Hsieh (1989) to accommodate S. taiwanensis. Sivanesan & Hsieh (1989) assigned Setocampanula in Trichosphaeriaceae, because Setocampanula resembles other genera of Trichosphaeriaceae in its superficial setose ascomata and the unitunicate asci without any apical ring. Setocampanula taiwanensis is a bambusicolous fungus collected from Taiwan.
