Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Hydroid colony of benthic species stolonal or ramified erect; bivalve-inhabiting species without perisarc, with pedal disc, usually solitary; planktonic species solitary, polyp budding totally into a single medusa; hydrotheca cylindrical in young colonies of erect forms, with diaphragm and folded pleated operculum formed by convergent flaps not demarcated from the hydrothecal rim; in older colonies of this type, operculum generally lost and hydrotheca reduced to perisarcal collar, of haleciid type; hydrotheca usually reduced or absent in stolonal colonies, hydranth naked, borne directly on hydrorhiza or on short pedicels; hydranth of commensal species elongated, extensile, with filiform tentacles in a single amphicoronate whorl; intertentacular web present; gonophores on hydranths, hydrocaulus, or hydrorhiza, naked or more usually at least initially in a gonotheca, in form of medusae or medusoids with gonads on radial canals. Medusa manubrium small, on rather well differentiated gastric peduncle; four to six simple radial canals running from subumbrella along peduncle to manubrium; with or without excretory papillae or pores on tentacle bulbs; tentacles hollow; with or without cirri or marginal warts; gonads on radial canals, separated from manubrium, eight and more statocysts; without ocelli. [details]
