Importance and distribution

Species of Capnokyma are saprobic on bark of living trees. Capnokyma comprises two species. C. corticola is known from Ackama rosifolia (Cunoniaceae), Hoheria populnea (Malvaceae), Neopanax arboreus (Araliaceae), Olearia rani (Asteraceae), Pseudopanax arboreus (Araliaceae) in New Zealand. C. rossmanae is known from unidentified tree in South America (Venezuela). Capnokyma is a poorly studied genus and it needs to be recollected.
