The general theory of continua with microstructure reviewed in  (and, in particular, the theory of gyrocontinua studied in ) is adapted to apply to perfect spin fluids and hyperuids . Obvious changes are needed due to the prevailing interest for solids in  and to some extent in ; here, in addition, the conservative character of the continuum is exploited. Finally, the roles of metric, coframe, connection, torsion and curvature in fluids are explored. .
