Following the destruction of conifer needles by certain members of the Hypodermataceae, a number of secondary invaders find entry to the needles and compete for the food supply. These secondary fungi are beneficial in that they serve to prevent the maturation of the parasitic organisms and thus provide a natural biological control of the latter. Leptosphaeria faullii, sp. nov., and its presumed conidial state, Coniothyrium faullii, sp. nov., are secondary after Hypodermella mirabilis and Bifusella faullii.
