Original Description

Theopilida (vel Tricyrtida triradiata aperta) with three simple, free, lateral wings, arising from the collar stricture between cephalis and thorax.

The genus Corocalyptra comprises a small number of very elegant hat-shaped Tricyrtida, which resemble greatly Eucecryphalus among the Dicyrtida. As in the latter, three free, radial spines, or simple wings, corresponding to the three basal feet of Cortina, arise from the collar stricture between the small hemispherical cephalis and the large, flatly conical thorax. Corocalyptra differs from Eucecryphalus, its ancestral form, in the development of a flat and broad abdomen, which is a prolongation of the thorax, and may be compared to the brim of a hat.



From the Greek corocalyptra = coif or hood of a girl"
