Diagnosis Diplocrininae with bowl-shaped cup. Basals rather small, separated on surface of cup. Arms divided at primibrachial 2; approximately 6 secundibrachials; further divisions with variable intervals, and distal brachitaxis series with more than 6 brachials. Cryptosyzygy between brachials 1 and 2 of brachitaxes, all other brachial articulations muscular. Proximal columnals pentalobate, alternating in size and with radial pores in the suture; distal column subcylindrical. Internodes of 13 to 21 internodals, less in proximal part of column; nodals slightly larger than internodals, and with 5 large, elliptical cirrus sockets facing outward; cirri long. [details]
