Hypoxylon comaropsis Mont., Ann. Sci. Nat. Bot., sÚr. II, 13: 350. 1840.

GUYANA: Leprieur, C. 368, corticated wood (PC, LECTOTYPE [selected here] of H. comaropsis).

The type material includes a Xylaria element and a Hypoxylon element. The Hypoxylon element is unrecognizable owing to its depauperate nature. We, therefore, select the Xylaria element as the lectotype. It is a penzigioid Xylaria belonging to the X. polymorpha complex.
