Original Description

Panartida with double cortical shell and double medullary shell, on both poles of the main axis with two opposite apical spines, or with a bunch or circle of polar spines.



From the Greek peripanicium = Panicium with mantle"

Extra details from original publication
The genus Peripanicium differs from Panicium only in the development of an outer reticulated envelope, which mantle-like surrounds the shell, and represents a second or external cortical shell. As in Panicium, its ancestral form, so also in Peripanicium, there can be distinguished two subgenera : Peripanicea, where only a single large spine arises from each pole (lying in the main axis), and Peripanicula, where a variable number of spines is to be found, either diverging bunch-like from the pole itself, or surrounding it as a crown-like polar circle.
