As Bianca says, it's spelled seemanni. The species was named after Berthold Carl Seemann, and he spelt his name this way.

Yea, I was wondering that for a while myself. I've seen both 'seemani' and 'seemanni' and have to end up using both in a search cause a lot of people, I noticed, use either or.

And I always pronounced it 'see-ma-nee', lol.

Romances languages,(Languages that come from Latin) normally dont have any sounds like "say" "way" when it comes to vocals...the sounds are more dry".

Theraphosa= Teh-ruh-foh-sa (for example)
Blondi= blond-e

Apophysis= Ah-poh-fee-sees

good info for me

In South Korea, because they do not use English, not much has been pronounced does not care much about. So I have to get accurate information about the pronunciation was difficult.
