A new coelomycete found on the bark of twigs of Cornus kousa in Seoul, Korea is described on the natural host, and on three artificial media. The fungus is characterized by immersed pycnidial conidiomata 175-300(-450) μm diam and large, cylindrical macroconidia 52-62.5 × 17-19.5 μm, that become muriform and ultimately brown after secession from percurrently proliferating conidiogenous cells. It is placed in the genus Camarographium because of the pycnidial conidiomata and structure of the macroconidia.
