    Glider are you sure? Never heard N. burbidgeae pronounced like that or jaq. Of course there is no official pronounciation book available so technically....there isn't really a "wrong" way to say a latin name.

    I say them as follows

    Neh-pen-theese
    burr-bid-jee-ay
    jack-kel-lin-e-ay

    I say 'jack-que-line (As in Jacqueline)-ee-ay'. Although, it's prolly "in" not "ine"; "ine" just sounds prettier.

    yeah, I would think that it would be pronounced like how it would in Latin.
    So I'd go with Nep Gracilis

    Bur-bid-ge-ay

    Jac-Kel-In-E-Ay

    Ay = A

    For me, at least.

    Latin is often (90%) pronounced exactly like its spelled.
    So burbidgeae is probably pronounced burbid-jay and the same with jacquelin -ay.
    With Lowii and Vogelii its Low-e-I and Vogel-e-I.
    Thats what my latin teacher said anyhow.
    But Im Swedish so it may be different for us.
    Though I think that Vogel in Vogelii is not latin, its german and means bird since its a german guy who named it. (wistuba or Carow I dont remember).
    And then Vogel is pronounced Foogl in english. So it Foogl-e-I.
