 The author describes a fundamental domain for the punctured Riemann surface \(V_{3,m}\) which parametrises (up to Möbius conjugacy) the set of quadratic rational maps with numbered critical points, such that the first critical point has period three and the second critical point is not mapped in \(m\) iterates or less to the periodic orbit of the first. This gives, in turn, a description, up to topological conjugacy, of all dynamics in all type III hyperbolic components in \(V_{3}\), and gives indications of a topological model for \(V_{3}\), together with the hyperbolic components contained in it.
