Diagnosis Medusa 1-30 mm, with or without centripetal canals; internal epi-gastrodermal statocysts; unbranched radial canals; gonads on radial canals or exceptionally on manubrium (Limnocnida); no ocelli.
Hydroid usually solitary, rarely forming colonies; generally minute; no tentacles, one tentacle, or several tentacles in a single whorl, sometimes with dactylozooids; no theca; active asexual reproduction by buds or frustules; usually with free medusae, exceptionally with free or fixed eumedusoids. [details]

Spelling 
Calder (2010): There has been inconsistency in the spelling of the name of this family, as Olindiadae, Olindiidae, Olindiadidae, and Olindiasidae, because of uncertainty as to the stem of the type genus Olindias F. Müller, 1861 originally used in forming the name. According to Commissioner Miguel Alonso-Zarazaga of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (personal communication, 16 April 2010), the name Olindias is a Greek-like word of unknown origin, regarded as a “nomen proprium” (Haeckel 1879; Moreira and Yamashita 1972). The stem of this name for the purposes of the code is that adopted by the author who established the new family (ICN Art. 29.3.3). Haeckel (1879) founded this family as Olindiadae, yet he formed other family-group names in his monograph by adding the suffixes –IDAE or -INAE to the stems of their type genera. It is thus unclear from Haeckel’s work whether he intended the stem to be Olindi-, or as a Greek substantive having the stem Olindiad-. The names Olindiadae and Olindiasidae, the latter suggested by Moreira and Yamashita (1972), are nomenclaturally incorrect. The spelling adopted here is the more widely used Olindiidae, as emended by Bigelow (1909).
The gender of the genus name Olindias was not specified by F. Müller (1861), and it cannot be determined from the only originally included species (O. sambiquensis F. Müller, 1861). Thus, the name is to be treated as masculine (ICZN Art. 30.2.3). This is of relevance in the correct spelling of certain species-group names combined with Olindias [e.g. O. formosa (Goto, 1903), should be O. formosus].
