The present paper is the third part of a monography on the tertiary land-snail family Filholiidae Wenz 1923 (= Triptychiidae Wenz 1923). The genera Triptychia Sandberger and Filholia Bourguignat belong to the Filholiidae. By incorporating the prevailing literature on Filholiidae critically and examination of material from numerous museums and private collections in Europe the family is revised. In this paper, the miocene species of the genus Triptychia are discussed. Triptychia dolium n. sp., T. fragilis n. sp., T. gaali n. sp., T. gracilis frankae n. ssp., T. kleini reinensis n. ssp., T. laaensis n. sp., T. luegeri n. sp., T. lugdunensis n. sp., T. nordsiecki n. sp., T. norica n. sp., T. pappi n. sp., T. procera n. sp., T. pulchra n. sp., T. schuetti n. sp., T. solida n. sp., T. solida schaireri n. ssp., T. splendida n. sp., T. steiningeri n. sp., T. styriaca n. sp., T. szontaghi n. sp., T. teutonica n. sp., T. weinsteigensis n. sp., T. wenzi n. sp. and T. zoebeleini n. sp. are described as new taxa.
