Gastrozooids bearing filiform tentacles scattered over at least distal third of hydranth body, not concentrated in a narrow band. Gonophores developing either below the hydranth body, or directly on stolons, or from stolonal blastostyles with perisarc-covered pedicels. Gonophores either free medusae or fixed sporosacs. Free medusa, where present, with four mouth lips, mouth margin fringed with numerous spherical nematocyst clusters; four simple radial canals, without centripetal canals, juveniles with four or more tentacles, adults with numerous tentacles, these not grouped, their nematocysts evenly distributed.
