Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Campanulinidae is likely only a temporary taxon and could disappear in future. Its unsettled position stems from the fact that several families of Leptothecata have identical polyp stages of the simple "campanulinid-type",differing only in their medusa stages. When such hydroids lose the medusa stage during evolution, there is no way tell where the polyp actually belongs to. Molecular phylogenetic investigations will have to resolve the status of such hydroids and the taxon Campanulinidae. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Hydroid colony stolonal or branched; hydrotheca usually campanulate or cylindrical, adnate or upright, with or without pedicel, always covered by operculum of several triangular flaps, distinctly demarcated from hydrotheca or not; with or without diaphragm; with or without nematophores; gonophores as fixed sporosacs or as free medusae. [details]
