Importance and distribution
The role of Hyweljonesia queenslandica is not known. It is uncertain if Hyweljonesia queenslandica is an entomopathogen or saprobic. Crous et al. (2016) mentioned that H. queenslandica is possibly competing with the chalcidoid wasp for the pupal nutrients. Hyweljonesia comprises two species. Hyweljonesia indica has been found on Shorea robusta (Dipterocarpaceae) in Asia (India). Hyweljonesia queenslandica has been reported on the cocoon of Microlepidoptera, on the underside of an unidentified leaf in Australia (Queensland).
