    A professor of mine (ecologist) told me that when pronouncing latin names it's best to say it fast and with confidence so if you say it wrong no one will know because you deliver it with a knowing attitude, this was in a text book he once used and he agreed with it.
    I would say it Dro-may-us nov-A-hol-and-E-A
