Boidinia is a genus of crust fungi in the family Russulaceae. The genus is widely distributed, and contains 10 species.[1] Boidinia was described in 1982 with the type species Boidinia furfuracea (formerly placed in Gloeocystidiellum). It is named in honor of French mycologist Jacques Boidin.[2]

N. Maekawa (1994) wrote: "The genus Boidinia is a satellite genus of Gloeocystidiellum and differs from the latter in forming loose texture in subiculum and globose, echinulate to verrucose basidiospores."[3]

Boidinia is probably not monophyletic and needs taxonomical redefinition.[4]
