Importance and distribution

Biochemical importance of the genus, chemical diversity or applications

Wang et al. (2008) reported diphenyl ether, named as quercilolin, tenellic acid A and 2’,4’-dihydroxyacetophenone from Camposporium quercicola.


There are 29 Camposporium epithets in Index Fungorum (2022), but several species have been transferred to Paratrichoconis and Xylomyces. Camposporium comprises 24 species known on Acacia aulacocarpa (Fabaceae), Caesalpinia echinata (Fabaceae), Cinnamomum japonicum (Lauraceae), Cocos nucifera (Arecaceae), Coffea arabica (Rubiaceae), Drymophloeus pachycladus (Arecaceae), Eucalyptus globulus (Myrtaceae), Ficus erecta (Moraceae), Laurus nobilis (Lauraceae), Mucuna ferruginea (Fabaceae), Neolitsea scrobiculata (Lauraceae), Phoenix hanceana (Arecaceae), Pinus massoniana (Pinaceae), Quercus sp. (Fagaceae), Sabal sp. (Arecaceae), Trachycarpus fortunei (Arecaceae) and many more. Camposporium has been recorded from Asia (China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, India, Japan), Australia, Europe (United Kingdom), South America (Brazil, Venezuela) and The United States (California, Florida).
