Second try. I believe $K_{6,3}$ is a counterexample.

It is genus $1$ and contains $2$ edge disjoint $K_{3,3}$s sharing only
$3$ vertices.

Explicitly:

```
K_{6,3}=[(0, 6), (0, 7), (0, 8), (1, 6), (1, 7), (1, 8), (2, 6), (2, 7), (2, 8), (3, 6), (3, 7), (3, 8), (4, 6), (4, 7), (4, 8), (5, 6), (5, 7), (5, 8)]
first K_{3,3}=[(3, 6), (3, 7), (3, 8), (4, 6), (4, 7), (4, 8), (5, 6), (5, 7), (5, 8)]
second K_{3,3}=[(0, 6), (0, 7), (0, 8), (1, 6), (1, 7), (1, 8), (2, 6), (2, 7), (2, 8)]
shared vertices 8,6,7
```

*Added* $K_{3,3n}$ are counterexamples too.

$g(K_{3,3n})=\lceil (3n-2)/4 \rceil < (3n-2) / 4 + 1$

$K_{3,3n}$ has $n$ disjoint $K_{3,3}$ sharing only $3$ vertices:
connect the $3$ partition to $3$ distinct vertices from the $3n$ partition.
