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.
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.
