Importance and distribution

Filiella comprises only one species causing leaf spots on several host plants such as on Angelica, Apium, Archangelica, Astrantia, Eremodaucus, Heracleum, Laserpitium, Libanotis, Pastinaca and other hosts (Apiaceae). Filiella is reported from Central Asia, Europe (Caucasus), North America and South Africa (Braun 1995). Re-collection of Filiella is needed as molecular data is limited for the genus.
