Corpus appendicibus lateralibus.
Tentacula ramosa.

Der Körper mit seitlichen flügelförmigen Anhangseln oder Kanten, auf welchen die Schwimmblättchen-Reihen sich befinden. Die Höhlen der Fangfäden öffnen sich an dem, dem Munde entgegengesetzten, Ende des Körpers; sie haben einzelne grofse Zweige. Der Mund steht röhrenförmig vor. (Es hat sich nicht gefügt, dafs ich eine Art dieser Gattung hätte selbst beobachten können.)

DeepL translation 20220629
The body has lateral wing-shaped appendages or edges, on which the rows of webbed leaves are located. The cavities of the tentacles open at the end of the body opposite the mouth; they have individual large branches. The mouth protrudes tubularly. (It did not happen that I could have observed a species of this genus myself). [details]
