Etymology Edit

The myco prefix in biology refers to anything related to fungi, for example the study of fungi is mycology. Nid, nidae, id, or idae refers, in zoology, to the class or family to which a species belongs. In this case myconid can mean of the fungi class.

Its name is most likely a reference to the race of half-human/half-fungus creatures found in Dungeons & Dragons, also called Myconids.
