A range of different types of wart have been identified, varying in shape and site affected, as well as the type of human papillomavirus involved. These include
- Common wart (''Verruca vulgaris''), a raised wart with roughened surface, most common on hands and knees;
- Flat wart (''Verruca plana''), a small, smooth flattened wart, flesh coloured, which can occur in large numbers; most common on the face, neck, hands, wrists and knees;
- Filiform or digitate wart, a thread- or finger-like wart, most common on the face, especially near the eyelids and lips;
- Plantar wart (verruca, ''Verruca pedis''), a hard sometimes painful lump, often with multiple black specks in the center; usually only found on pressure points on the soles of the feet;
- Mosaic wart, a group of tightly clustered plantar-type warts, commonly on the hands or soles of the feet;
- Genital wart (venereal wart, ''Condyloma acuminatum'', ''Verruca acuminata''), a wart that occurs on the genitalia.
- Periungual wart, a cauliflower-like cluster of warts that occurs around the nails.
