Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Hydrozoans that always have a polyp stage. Hydranths either solitary or colonial, body not covered by firm perisarc. Medusae not colonial, without statocysts, with gonads on manubrium, with radial canals, with tentacles arising from bell-margin. Cnidome normally includes desmonemes (not Eudendriidae and Laingiidae). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The naming of this taxon is disputed, some prefer Anthomedusae, some Athecata (oldest name). Molecular investigations show that this group is likely not monophyletic, it will thus most probably disappear. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The original spelling in Cornelius (1992) was Anthoathecata. Cornelius (1995a) changed the spelling to Anthoathecatae, which seems unnecessary. [details]
