Diagnosis Hydroid colony usually erect and branching, rarely stolonal, arising from a creeping hydrorhiza; hydrotheca sessile or pedicellate (on socalled hydrophore), shallow; hydranth much larger than hydrotheca, often robust, with or without intertentacular web, hydrothecal rim usually even, hydrotheca lacking operculum; renovation common; bottom of hydrotheca formed by concentric diaphragm, above diaphragm a ring of small knobs; endoderm of hydranths differentiated into proximal digestive part and distal non digestive pert, nematophores, nematothecae and nematodactyls present or absent; gonophores fixed or rarely free sporosacs; gonothecae solitary or grouped into a glomulus, infrequently with naked gonophores. [details]
