Abstract: The genus of the mapping cone $ {C_f}$ of a map $ f:{S^{m - 1}} \to \bigvee{S^n}(m > n > 1)$ representing a suspension element of finite order in $ {\pi _{m - 1}}(\bigvee{S^n})$ is classified by a subgroup $ {G_f}$ of $ {\pi _{m - 1}}({S^n})$ depending only on the homotopy type of $ {C_f}$. The group $ {G_f}$ finds application in proving that the genus of $ {C_f}$ is trivial whenever $ {C_f}$ has sufficiently many $ n$-cells, the number being limited by the torsion subgroup of $ {\pi _{m - 1}}({S^n})$.
