- "The Bundimun at rest resembles a patch of greenish fungus with eyes. Useful in some potions, including Doxycide."
The Bundimun was a magical creature found worldwide. It a greenish, many-eyed pest that fed on dirt and could destroy a whole house. Their presence was indicated by the foul stench of decay. The secretions of the Bundimun rotted building structures, and with a large enough infestation the building could collapse. Scouring Charms could clear out small infestations, but large colonies needed to be dealt with by the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures (Pest Sub-Division). Bundimuns are known to spit out acid that can seriously harm anyone who bothers it. Bundimun Secretions, when diluted, are used in some magical cleaning solutions.
