Importance and distribution

Verrucocladosporium comprises three species known on three host plants and two plant families namely Aizoaceae and Roccellaceae. They are lichenicolous and may play a role in nutrient recycling in the ecosystem or live on the host as host-specific parasites (Hawksworth 2003). Verrucocladosporium is reported from Europe (Spain, United Kingdom) and South Africa.
