Elaphocordyceps ophioglossoides—in case you didn’t know—is a species of fungus, and while its scientific name is certainly elegant, it doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. As such, it has a recommended common name: Snaketongue Truffleclub.

The British Mycological Society has an enormous list of fungi species with their scientific and common English names. It’s a lexical journey that does not disappoint, and seriously, if someone doesn’t feel compelled to pursue mycology and/or get a killer band name out of this, we’ll be very disappointed.
