A hyperelliptic example     
Everett Howe

The cited reference gives as an example the plane quartic x^4 + y^4 + z^4 = 0. A paper of Kodama, Top, and Washio ("Maximal hyperelliptic curves of genus three", Finite Fields Appl. 15 (2009) 392–403) points out that the hyperelliptic curve y^2 = x^7 + x provides another example.
