Importance and role
Importance of genus to ecosystem
Species of Stictographa are lichenicolous and responsible for wood decay and forest ecosystems organic matter reintegration (Lonsdale et al. 2008).
Industrial relevance and applications
The industrial applications of Stictographa has not been investigated.
No biological agent from Stictographa has been reported.
Biochemical importance of the genus, chemical diversity or applications
The chemical application of Stictographa has not been investigated. Stictographa may produce important enzymes. More cultures of Stictographa is needed for further study.
Diversity of the genus
Stictographa comprises only one species known on beech (Fagaceae) in England. Stictographa is a poorly studied genus. Comprehensive studies are needed to discover more species of Stictographa.
