I have never had the pleasure of a formal education in mycology, 

but I have often wondered how these names are pronounced. Here

is a link to Tom Volk rattling off quite a few common genus and 

species. I hope some of you enjoy this as much as I have!

Topic pinned for reference alongside field guides and other useful information.

Thanks KMC!!

 

I share the same limitations. Long on enthusiasm - short on education. This stuff is gold!

I needed this thanks if I write the latin name out enough I can remember the spelling but to pronounce it no way not without hearing it first.

Maybe Uderzo & Goscinny of ASTERIX could find names of future characters for their comics from this list !!?

 

Loved it.

I was pronouncing Trichoderma correctly all along. Who'd a thunk?
