Original Description
Archipilida (vel Monocyrtida triradiata aperta) with three lateral ribs prolonged into three terminal feet. Apex without horn.

The genus Tripodonium differs from the preceding Tripocalpis, its probable ancestral form, only in the loss of the apical horn (already very small in some forms of the latter). It bears therefore to the latter the same relation that Sethopilium does to Dictyophimus.

Editors' Notes
[Although Haeckel refers to p.428 of his Prodromus, there is no genus Tripodonium on that or on any other page in that reference.
