      There are a number of Penicillium species, but as far as I know they are
      not found on citrus. The antibiotic one was originally derived from a
      bread mold, I believe. Others are used in cheese making; my husband,
      who is allergic to penicillin, gets a bad reaction to any blue cheese.
