In this paper, we consider the group of symmetries of the Sulphur molecule (S) which is a finite point group of order 16 denote by D16 generated by two elements having the presentation { u\upsilon/u2\upsilon8 = (u\upsilon)2 = 1} and find the complete set of genera (g ≥ 2) of Compact Riemann surfaces on which  D16 acts as a group of automorphisms as follows:

D16 the group of symmetries of the sulfur (S8) molecule of order 16 acts as an automorphism group of a compact Riemann surfaces of genus g ≥ 2 if and only if there are integers \lambda and \mu such that \lambda \leq 1 and \mu \geq 1 and
g=\lambda +8\mu (\geq2) , \mu\geq |\lambda|
