Diagnosis Hydroids monomorphic or polymorphic, sessile, stolonal, or branched colonies. Gastrozooids bearing filiform tentacles scattered over at least distal third of hydranth body, not concentrated in a narrow band. Gonophores developing either below the hydranth body, or directly on stolons, or from stolonal blastostyles with perisarc-covered pedicels. Gonophores either free medusae or fixed sporosacs. Free medusa, where present, with four mouth lips, mouth margin fringed with numerous spherical nematocyst clusters; four simple radial canals, without centripetal canals, juveniles with four or more tentacles, adults with numerous tentacles, these not grouped, their nematocysts evenly distributed. Ocelli present on adaxial base of tentacles. Gonads on interradial walls of manubrium.  [details]
