Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (just a free online dictionary I consult for BrE) pronounces fungi (plural for fungus) with a hard /g/, and gives this as both the British and American norm. Merriam-Webster’s (a free online dictionary I consult for AmE) gives both variants, with /j/ and with /g/, the one with the /j/ listed first.

I am surprised by the absence of palatalization in the BrE variant.
