I have found various sites on the web about pronunciation of scientific names, so I'm pretty sure I've got it right, I just want to be absolutely sure.
Right now, I am pronouncing it as: steg-ASS-tees loo-co-STICK-tuss.
I will be speaking with an American accent for an American audience, if that changes anything.
Ten points if you can identify the play I'm in.
