Importance and role
Bahusandhika comprises nine species known on four host plants and families namely Arecaceae, Dipterocarpaceae, Poaceae and Rubiaceae. Bahusandhika grootfonteinensis has been isolated from brown sandy soil. Bahusandhika rhombic was found on dead wood and B. sundara was found on dead stems. Bahusandhika is reported from Asia (India), Central America (Costa Rica, Panama), New Zealand, North America (Mexico) and South America (Venezuela). More fresh collections and sequence data are needed for this genus.
