English: Baudoinia compniacensis is found on a wide range of substrates in the vicinity of distilleries, spirits maturation facilities, and large bakeries. The fungus is a habitat coloniser with a preference for airborne alcohol. It was first investigated in 1872 when Casimir Roumeguère and Charles Durieu de Maisonneuve examined this black, sooty growth found on the walls and roof tiles of buildings near distilleries in Cognac, France at the instigation of the French pharmacist Antonin Baudoin.
