Status Stechow (1921: 248) pointed out that the genus Candelabrum de Blainville, 1830 has priority over Myriothela Sars, 1850. Consequently, he then also changed the family name from Myriothelidae Hincks, 1868 to Candelabridae Stechow, 1921. According to the ICZN [4th ed. 1999, 40.2] such a name change is valid if it was made before 1961 and if the new name has been widely used. The name Candelabridae
has only recently come into usage (e. g. Bouillon, 1985; Schuchert, 1996; Hewitt & Goddard, 2001; Schuchert, 1996, 2006, 2012), while other used Myriothelidae (e. g. Calder, 1972; Millard, 1975; Petersen, 1990). I therefore suggest that for the sake of nomenclatural stability,
Candelabridae should be used. This name matches the genus name and it is also used in several large electronic databases. If in future Candelabridae should not become the prevailing name, then a ruling of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature must be requested. [details]

Diagnosis Hydroid solitary or forming pseudo-colonies. Hydrocaulus short, with tubular or root-like adhesive processes, with or without perisarc. Hydranth large and elongated, covered in distal half by numerous scattered, hollow capitate tentacles, tentacles solitary or grouped adnate basally; gonophores fixed, developing on aboral part of hydranth below tentacle covered region, either directly on hydranth or on spindle-shaped blastostyles. Gonophores fixed sporosacs. [details]
