Diagnosis Colonies erect, arising from a stolonal hydrorhiza; hydrocauli unbranched, divided into internodes, giving rise to hydrocladia from alternate or mostly alternate apophyses, cauline hydrothecae absent; hydrocladia dichotomously or irregularly branched, or unbranched, divided into internodes, often with terminal hydrothecae; hydrothecae uniseriate, sessile, small, cup-shaped, relatively shallow, free of hydrothecial internode or not completely adnate; radially symmetrical; margin entire; operculum absent. Nematophores and nematothecae absent.
Gonophores presumably fixed sporosacs; gonothecae solitary, conical, without nematothecae, arising from apophyses of hydrocaulus; phylactocarps absent.
