- Type: Sedobassia sedoides
This monotypic genus belongs to Camphorosmoideae, with an annual species that is distributed from Hungary to southern Siberia and shows a C3/C4 intermediate photosynthetic pathway (Kadereit & al. 2014). The illegitimate name Salsola sedoides Pall. (the basionym of Sedobassia sedoides) was proposed for conservation against Salsola sedoides L. (Freitag & Sennikov 2014). If this proposal is accepted, the name Sedobassia sedoides (Pall.) Freitag & G. Kadereit will remain in use.
