Calycophorae in which both anterior and posterior nectophores possess a somatocyst. The nectophores are stream-lined, although the hydroecium is more prominent than in the diphyids. The phyllocyst of the eudoxid bracts characteristically bears two fine basal branches extending down into the neck shield. [details]
