Original Description

Druppulida with four or more concentric shells (two medullary and two or more cortical shells), with numerous radial spines, but without polar tubes.

The genus Cromyocarpus differs from Cromyodruppa only in the development of numerous large radial spines which start from the outer surface of the shell. It exhibits therefore the same relation to the latter that Prunocarpus bears to Prunulum or Druppocarpus to Druppula. It differs from both in the multiplication of the cortical shell.

From the Greek cromyocarpus = onion fruit"
