An orthosymplectic pairing supersymmetry is demonstrated for systems classified using combined Bose-Fermi seniority groups, such as SOB+F(5) and SOB+F(6) which can occur when coupling a fermion to the Bohr-Mottelson and interacting boson models. This supersymmetry is analogous to quasispin for bosons and fermions separately. By virtue of its association with a particular classification scheme, this supersymmetry can be subjected to a meaningful experimental verification.
