Species

Baudoinia is a fungal genus in the family Teratosphaeriaceae.[1] It was created to hold the single species Baudoinia compniacensis, which was formerly known as Torula compniacensis.[2] Four additional species were added to the genus in 2015.[3] The genus was named in honor of the 19th-century French pharmacist Antonin Baudoin, who first recorded the description of a black, sooty mold that grew near distilleries in Cognac, France.[2] The story of the rediscovery and renaming of this genus was told in an article in the magazine Wired in 2011.[4]
