Can you pronounce Hemianthis callitrichoides

Just like the title says. Can you?

The way I pronounce it rhymes with "he me and this" "cali (like california) try coitus".

I think there is a pretty good consensus for the genus, it's just the species name that nails me

I pronounce it "HC". I would hurt myself trying to say the latin name. My wife can't pronounce it either and she's from Latin America.

That's pretty much how I thought it was pronounced too.

It would be a great idea if someone who knew how to pronounce these plant names would put together a program that when you click on the plant name you get an audio of someone saying it correctly. Kind of like when you go to an online dictionary, you can click on the word for an audio pronunciation. Then you could incorporate that with TPT's plant profile information and now people know how to pronounce the plant names.

As far as the thread question is concerned: it is pronounced "aych see"

But isn't there a "d" in "callitrichoides"?

Even for a dead language, there are so many different scholars with varying views on Latin pronunciations.

I can pronounce it. Say it very slowly- dwarf baby tears.
