Type species – Verrucocladosporium dirinae K. Schub., Aptroot & Crous, Studies in Mycology 58: 41 (2007).
Notes – Crous et al. (2007b) introduced Verrucocladosporium based on V. dirinae and assigned it as Capnodiales incertae sedis. The type species was wrongly deposited as Cladosporium arthoniae. However, Verrucocladosporium differs from Cladosporium sensu stricto in having cylindrical-filiform, non-geniculate, non-nodulose conidiophores, and non-coronate conidiogenous loci (Crous et al. 2007b). Braun et al. (2009) described the second species from thalli of Roccella boergesenii, but without molecular data. The third species was established by Crous et al. (2019e).
