Catadysis Canu & Bassler, 1927

Type species: Schizoporella challengeria Waters, 1888 (=Myriozoum immersum Busk, 1884).

Schizoporella challengeriana was a misprint in Canu & Bassler, 1927. Schizoporella challengeria was proposed as a replacement name for Myriozoum immersum Busk, 1884, by Waters, as he considered both this species and Onchopora immersa Haswell, 1881 were to be included in Schizoporella, making Busk's species a secondary homonym. As Onchopora immersa is now recognised as belonging to Tetraplaria, the replacement name is unnecessary.
