Importance and distribution

Vacuiphoma comprises two species. Vacuiphoma bulgarica was isolated from leaves of Trachystemon orientalis (Boraginaceae) in Europe (Bulgaria) while V. oculihominis was isolated from eye secretion of a human in The United States (Illinois). Vacuiphoma is an interesting but poorly studied genus.
