Sonderophycus capensis (Montagne) M.J.Wynne, 2011


  • Basionym
    • Peyssonnelia capensis Montagne, 1847
      • Type locality: Durban, South Africa. Type: Drège; Herb. Montagne, PC.
  • Homotypic
    • Pterigospermum capense (Montagne) Kuntze, 1891
    • Sonderopelta capensis (Montagne) D.M.Krayesky, 2009
  • Heterotypic

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)
