Taxonomic notes
Stiger et al. (2003) note that this species from New Caledonia, belonging to the subgenus Phyllotrichia, was found to belong neither to the subgenusBactrophycus nor the subgenus Sargassum. They also note that the systematic position of the subgenus Phyllotrichia has yet to be clarified , but if S. boryii transpires to be a true Phyllotrichia species, then the subgenus Phyllotrichia is distinct from Bactrophycus and Sargassum.

General environment
This is a marine species.

Type information
Type locality: Ad litus occidentale Novae Hollandiae (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 692).
