Original Description

Panartida with double cortical shell and double medullary shell, without polar spines or tubes on both poles of the main axis.



From the Greek peripannartus = Panartus with mantle"

Extra details from original publication
The genus Peripanartus differs from Panartus only in the development of an outer reticulated envelop, which mantle-like surrounds the shell and represents a second or external cortical shell. This mantle or veil envelops either the whole internal cortical shell or only both proximal chambers. Peripanartus exhibits the same relation to Panartus as in the foregoing ancestral family Cypassis bears to Cyphonium.
