Original Description
This genus is erected to accommodate the lineage from Lamprocyrtis heteroporos through L. haysi and possibly L. (?) hannai, a possible ancestor of the lineage. It is difficult to characterize because of rather marked differences between the initial and latest members of the lineage. Included are two- (later) and three- (earlier) segmented forms with a usually open, indistinctly three-lobed cephalis which tends to be cylindrical. The cephalis bears one stout, three-bladed apical horn and commonly one or more accessory spines. Pores of the postcephalic segment(s) usually increase in size distally, earlier species displaying a distinctive discontinuity in pore size. The shells terminate in a single, irregular row of axially to inwardly directed teeth which sometimes occupy a weakly developed peristome. Teeth occasionally occur outside the terminal row, but do not constitute a distinct second row as in Lamprocyclas Haeckel, 1882.
