Diagnosis Physonectae with nectosome and siphosome contracted to form a globular complex below the enlarged pneumatophore. The gas-secreting area is developed greatly to form a characteristic structure, the aurophore, extending from the baso-dorsal surface of the pneumatophore. The animals are benthic, attaching themselves to the sea-bed by their tentacles. [details]
