The excited leptons that share the quantum numbers with the Standard Model leptons but have larger masses are widespread in many promising new physics theories. A subclass of excited leptons that at low energies interact with the SM fermions dominantly through the effective coupling to lepton and fermion-antifermion pair can be referred as leptomesons. I introduce possible generation of the baryon asymmetry of the universe using these new particles. The discussed baryogenesis mechanisms do not contradict to the small neutrino masses and the proton stability, and can be interesting for the collider experiments.
