Importance and role
Importance of genus to ecosystem
Species of Paramycovellosiella are pathogenic and diseases of the host substrate.
Industrial relevance and applications
There is currently no industrial use of Paramycovellosiella. Further studies are warranted.
No biocontrol agent has been identified from Paramycovellosiella. Being pathogenic, Paramycovellosiella may have important role in biocontrol purposes.
Biochemical importance of the genus, chemical diversity or applications
No chemical has been reported from Paramycovellosiella. Paramycovellosiella may produce important enzymes and toxins that cause leaf spots on host and this warrants further investigation.
Diversity of the genus
Paramycovellosiella comprises only one species known on Amorpha fructicosa (Fabaceae) in Republic of Korea. More species of Paramycovellosiella can be discovered in future studies.
