Importance and role

Importance of genus to ecosystem

Species of Neotrimmatostroma are pathogenic and cause disease on the host substrate. They can also form mycelium on surface of leaves and affect the rate of photosynthesis.


Industrial relevance and applications

There are currently no industrial applications of Neotrimmatostroma.


Quarantine significance

No biocontrol agent from Neotrimmatostroma has been reported


Biochemical importance of the genus, chemical diversity or applications

The chemical diversity of Neotrimmatostroma has not been investigated yet.  Neotrimmatostroma may produce important enzymes and toxins that warrants further investigation.


Diversity of the genus

Neotrimmatostroma comprises three species known on one host plant and plant family namely Eucalyptus species (Myrtaceae). Neotrimmatostroma seems to be host specific. Neotrimmatostroma has been reported from New South Wales, New Zealand and Victoria. More species of Neotrimmatostroma can be discovered in future studies.
