Diagnosis Hydroid colony stolonal or erect, branching; hydrothecae bell- or cup-shaped, radially symmetrical, sometimes secondarily bilateral symmetric, pedicellate, with basal diaphragm or inward annular thickening of perisarc; hydranth generally tubular, with flared or globose hypostome with a pregastric cavity; gonophores in gonothecae, developing into free medusae, eumedusoids or sporosacs.
Medusa with short manubrium, no gastric peduncle, four radial canals (exceptionally more); with or without velum (Obelia); gonads surrounding radial canals, separated from manubrium; with or without rudimentary bulbs; no cirri, excretory papillae or pores; eight and more closed statocysts; no ocelli.
