No disease has been reported from Hazslinszkya.
Biochemical importance of the genus, chemical diversity or applications
The chemical diversity of Hazslinszkya has not been investigated.
Diversity of the genus
Hazslinszkya comprises only one species known on bark of trees such as Carpinus, Fagus, Fraxinus) in forests and is not lichenized (Ertz and Diederich 2015). Hazslinszkya has been reported from Austria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Switzerland (Ertz and Diederich 2015). The diversity of Hazslinszkya is not well-studied and further research is needed on this genus.
