Original Description

Podocyrtiden mit basal offener Schale und drei Radialapophysen, welche teilweise in der Thoraxwand als Rippen verlaufen und sich in ihrem letzten freien Teil als gegitterte Thoraxflügel über den Thorax erheben. Die proximalen Enden der Radiälapophysen treten mit dem Kopfhorn zu einem inneren Stachelgerüst zusammen.

Podocyrtidae with a shell having a basal opening and three radial apophyses, elongated as ribs on a part of the thorax with free terminations elevated above the thorax, as lattice winglets. The proximal part of the apophyses is united to the apical horn as to form an internal spicule.] (In German. Translated by J.P.C)]
