Polyps have tubular tentacles without side branches but with an anchor- or T-shaped tip. Colour: blue-grey outer border to the terminal structure of the tentacle. Abundance: seldom common but may be a dominant species on deep horizontal substrates. Colonies frequently exceed 1 m in diameter on flat muddy substrates and are conspicuous.
