Gonophores eumedusoid or free medusa with thick bell-shaped or conical umbrella; apical projection, when present, conical or dome-shaped, with thick mesoglea and broad apical chamber; manubrium flask-shaped, quadrate, or cruciform, narrowing towards the mouth, the latter simple, round or cruciform; two or four tentacles with adaxial, evenly distributed, spirally arranged or absent nematocyst clusters, with a terminal, ellipsoid or spherical capitation; marginal bulbs large, clasping exumbrella, each with adaxial expansion; ocelli abaxial, not always present in newly liberated medusae; gonads adradial, confluent in perradii in mature specimens.
