Then when I look into the .msh file and try to extract the point pairs in $Periodic $EndPeriodic, I find that only the nodes on the vertex of triangle are listed there. The internal nodes for each edge are not listed.

Indeed we only keep track of the main vertices in the Periodic section. Once you have those you can get the element correspondance and match the high-order ones.

@Koen, Amaury - should we also add the high-order vertices in the correspondance tables ?
