Editors' Notes
The genus Cyphanta is the most simple of all Cyphinida, and can be regarded as the common ancestral form of this family. It may be derived phylogenetically from Druppula by a ring-like constriction in the equatorial plane of the ellipsoidal cortical shell, or from Artiscus by secondary formation of a central (spherical or ellipsoidal) medullary shell.

[Loeblich and Tappan 1961, p.223 indicate that Cyphanta Haeckel, 1887a is a homonym of Cyphanta Walker, 1865. See Cyphantella Haeckel, 1887a.]
