Original Description
Sethopilida (vel Dicyrtida triradiata aperta) with three complete thoracic ribs, prolonged into three latticed divergent feet on the peristome. Cephalis with an apical horn.

The genus Tripocyrtis has been derived from the preceding Dictyophimus by complete fenestration of the three basal feet, which throughout their whole length become united by complete lattice-work. This genus is closely allied to Plectaniscus.

Etymology: Greek tripocyrtis = basket with a tripod"
