Hey DML members. Quick question here, How does one pronounce
Megaraptor's species name, Namunhuaiquii ?

My guess would be NAMUN-WHY-KEY-EYE (if you'll excuse the pseudo-phonetics).

You'd have to ask an actual Mapuche how 'huaiqui' (lance) is pronounced.

It looks like a Spanish transcription, hence almost surely [wai.ki].
