Diagnosis Hydroid colony forming massive, calcareous exoskeleton (= coenosteum) of varied shape; coenosteum with an internal complex network of coenosarcal tubes and covered externally by a thin ectodermal layer, coenosteal surface perforated by pores; margins of pores not protruding from surface of coenosteum; large gastropores surrounded by smaller dactylopores, forming indistinct cyclosystems; no gastrostyles and dactylostyles; polyps polymorphic; gastrozooids relatively short and stout, with an oral whorl of 4 to 7 short capitate tentacles, arising from gastropores; dactylozooids long, slender, mouthless, with scattered capitate tentacles, arising from dactylopores; cnidome with macrobasic mastigophores; gonophores arising from coenosarc within ampullae embedded in the coenosteum.
Gonophore are free swimming eumedusoids with exumbrellar cnidocyst patches, narrow velum, radial and circular canals, ‘gonads’ occupying the place of an indistinct manubrium and without tentacles and sense organs.
