Description Peduncle¼ or more the length of the manubrium; eight linear to sinuous gonads attached along most of the radial canals becoming pendant distally; lacks pigmentation on the subumbrella, and the gonads extend along most of the length of the radial canals, only at their distal ends are the 8 linear gonads pendant; more than 800 tentacles of different sizes but one type. Reaches up to 4 cm in diameter and has been observed in moderately dense aggregations
just above the bottom. [details]
