Type species – Sporocadus lichenicola Corda
Notes – Sporocadus was established by Corda (1839b) to include four species, but with no mention of the type. Hughes (1958) lectotypified Sporocadus based on S. lichenicola. The genus was once synonymised under Seimatosporium by Sutton (1975), but later classified as a distinct genus by Brockman (1976) and Nag Raj (1993). Liu et al. (2019a) showed that both Sporocadus and Seimatosporium are phylogenetically distinct and species in Sporocadus lack appendages.
