Original Description
Theoperida (vel Tricyrtida triradiata clausa) with three latticed lateral wings on the thorax.

The genus Sethornithium differs from the preceding Lithornithium, its ancestral form, only in the fenestration of the three thoracic wings, and bears therefore to it the same relation that Dictyoceras exhibits to Pterocorys.

Etymology: From the Greek sethornithium = latticed bird"
