Original description: 3a. Tribus: Theocorida.

AII acuta (capit. spin., non laevi).
IIb. sine bacillo axiali interno.
b++ tertio articulo non coatato (sine costis longitudinalibus).
§ tertio articulo oviformi, nec tubiformi nec disciformi.
§b. spinis cap. mult.

Translated description: 3a. Tribe: Theocorida. Open, eradiate Triocyrtida.
A. Girdled Theocorida (Lophocorida). Margin of the aperture smooth or truncate.
AII. Acute (cephalis spiny, not smooth).
IIb. Without internal axial rod.
b++ WitIL third segment not ribbed (without longitudinal ribs)
§ With third segment ovate, neither tubular nor discoidal.
§b. With many cephalic spines. (Translated from Latin by E.M.R. and W.R.R.)]
Remarks on original description: [Description: The asterisk following the generic name indicates that Haeckel believed this to be a new genus in 1881a. Haeckel's placing the name Cecryphalium at the end of line AII appears to be an error, but the problem thus created may be resolved by regarding Lophocorys as a subgenus of Cecryphalium. Haeckel mistakenly uses the same number for two genera, Lophocorys and Theosyringium.]
