High or low temperature?

Each species lives and grows at a different temperature. The fungi Coprinus fimetarius have an ideal temperature of 40°C, while other species live well at below –10°C, and are able to severely damage the food contained in refrigerators. For example Sporotrichium carnis and Cladosporium herbarum make back spots on frozen meat even at –5°C.
