Original Description

Sethophormida (vel Dicyrtida multiradiata aperta) without thoracic ribs, with numerous terminal feet around the mouth (twelve to fifteen or more). Cephalis free, with an apical horn.

The genus Anthocyrtium has been derived from the two preceding genera by further multiplication of the terminal feet, the number of which is at least twelve to fifteen, often twenty or more. It may be that some species have arisen directly from Patagospyris by loss of the sagittal ring.

Greek anthocyrtium = flower-basket"
