Abstract: In this paper we compute the equivariant homotopy type of spaces of algebraic cycles on real Brauer-Severi varieties, under the action of the Galois group $Gal({\mathbb C} / {\mathbb R})$. Appropriate stabilizations of these spaces yield two equivariant spectra. The first one classifies Dupont/Seymour's quaternionic $K$-theory, and the other one classifies an equivariant cohomology theory ${\mathfrak Z}^*(-)$ which is a natural recipient of characteristic classes $KH^*(X) \to {\mathfrak Z}^*(X)$ for quaternionic bundles over Real spaces $X$.
