Diagnosis Hydroid colony erect, branched, usually flabellate, more rarely encrusting, with a thick calcareous exoskeleton (coenosteum); polyps polymorphic and retractile; gastrozooids with one whorl of filiform tentacles, exceptionally without tentacles; bottom of gastric cavity with or without an upright pointed or rounded toothed spine (gastrostyle); dactylozooids filiform, without tentacles, with or without dactylostyle; gastrozooids and dactylozooids retractable into special skeletal depressions: gastropores and dactylopores; gastro- and dactylozooids either irregularly distributed over colony, or limited to certain regions of colony, or often arranged in circles (cyclosystems) where one gastrozooid is surrounded by several dactylozooids; gonophores as reduced fixed sporosacs and developed inside vesicles (ampullae) covered by or buried in coenosteum. [details]
