Original description: 3a. Tribus: Trematodiscida. Porodiscida inermia vel anacantha, sine aculeis marginalibus et sine brachiis cameratis.

AI. disco sine zona porosa aut spongiosa.

Translated description: 3a. Tribe: Trematodiscida. Porodiscida which are unarmed or without spines, without marginal spines and without chambered arms.
A. With simple, discoidal test without a coronate marginal opening.
AI. With a disk without a porous or spongy zone. (Translated from Latin by E.M.R. and W.R.R.)]
Remarks on original description: [Frizzell [Frizzell and Middour,1951 p.24] designates Trematodiscus orbiculatus Haeckel in Haeckel, 1862 as the type species of Porodiscus; Campbell [1954, p.D89] designates Flustrella concentrica Ehrenberg, 1838. However, these seem inappropriate as neither species was among those first subsequently assigned to Porodiscus. Species first subsequently assigned to Porodiscus are: Porodiscus communis Rust, 1885b; P.nuesslinii Rust, 1885b; P.simplex Rust, 1885b.]
