Funny that you’re asking about pronunciation, it’s so entertaining to hear the english and americans pronounce latin words.. True latin and phonetic spelling looks something like this: D[ae]*dal"ia. How to explain it in american english, I have no idea!

Thanks Walt

You will hear botanical Latin pronunciations range widely from country to country and even area to area. In my opinion there is no one correct guideline.
I say this one Duh-Day-Leah. Most folks will understand you if you pronounce it this way. The genus Hypomyces is really divergent. You will hear Hypo-mice-ease and more commonly in North America Hi-pom-iseas. In parts of Europe it is Hippo-mickeys!
