In taxonomy, Pseudodictyosphaerium is a genus of green algae, specifically of the Chlorococcales. In 2011, Krienitz et al. proposed that Pseudodictyosphaerium be combined with Mychonastes into a single genus; since the latter genus was published earlier in 1978, its name has priority, therefore making Pseudodictyosphaerium a synonym of Mychonastes. It is unknown if this has been accepted by the general scientific community.
