Original Description
Theocorida (vel Tricyrtida eradiata aperta) with cylindrical abdomen, and wide open truncate mouth. Cephalis with two horns, or a bunch of horns.

Etymology: From the Greek lophocyrtis = basket with a crest

Extra details from original publication
The genus Lophocyrtis differs from its ancestral form Theocyrtis only in the armature of the cephalis, bearing instead of a single horn either two divergent horns, or a bunch, or coronal of numerous spines. The slender abdomen is in both genera cylindrical, with wide open mouth.
