French mycologist and professor of natural history at the medical faculty in Nancy.
He described the genera Spinalia and Zygorhynchus. The mushroom genus Vuilleminia (Maire) is named after him. In 1889 he employed the term "antibiotic" when describing the substance pyocyanin.
In 1901 he transferred the yeast-like fungus that was named Saccharomyces hominis by Otto Busse and Saccharomyces neoformans by Francesco Sanfelice to the genus Cryptococcus due to its absence of ascospores. The French Academy of Sciences awarded him the Prix Montagne for 1902.
He died on 25 September 1932 in Malzéville.
