Perisarc of moderate thickness (7.6 µm wide), continuous from hydrorriza to tentacle base, wrinkled at the base of hydrocaulus. Exosarc thick and rugose over hydranth, tentacle base, and hypostome, forming a pseudohydrotheca. Hydranth vasiform, merging below almost imperceptibly into pedicel, pedicels quite long. Hypostome conical, 10–12 tentacles in one whorl.
