Sonderophycus Denizot, 1968

Krayesky et al. (2009) demonstrated that the type species of Sonderophycus (S. australis) and Sonderopelta (S. coriacea) belonged in a single genus that was distinct from Peyssonnelia. As Sonderophycus has priority over Sonderopelta, the correct name for the type species is Sonderophycus capensis (Mont.) M.J.Wynne (see Algaebase)
