Original Description

Sethophormida (vel Dicyrtida multiradiata aperta) without thoracic ribs, with six terminal feet around the mouth. Cephalis free, with an apical horn.

The genus Anthocyrtoma and the four following genera form together the peculiar group of Carpocanida, comprising all those Sethophormida in which the original thoracic ribs are lost, and only the terminal feet remain. Anthocyrtoma is the simplest form of this group, possessing only six terminal feet, three primary perradial, and three alternating, secondary, interradial. It may be directly derived either from Lychnocanium by interpolation of three interradial feet, or from Hexaspyris by loss of the sagittal ring.
