Well I've been researching and hunting for mushrooms for a while now, (About 8 months) and although I know the names of many species and genus', I can never figure out how to pronounce their Latin names. Is there any site that tells you how to say the Latin names the correct way? Thanks.

there are many fine sites online that offer [thier versions of] the correct, or most accepted pronounciations.

i don't have a ling to hand but if you do a search you should be rewarded.


Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Tom Volk's site also give some pronounciations.

Keep in mind that, even among the professionals, there is some variation in how they're pronounced. As long as you can communicate effectively, that's what counts.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
