Diagnosis Medusa as for genus Eucheilota but with 16-32 statocysts.
Hydroid colony 'Campanulina' type; stolonal or upright and sympodial; hydrotheca pedicellate, usually elongate, everted-conical to bell-shaped; operculum conical, formed either by many triangular plates with embayments of the hydrothecal margin and well demarcated from hydrothecal wall by noticeable crease line, or formed by a folded continuation of the hydrothecal wall, lacking hinge-like base; diaphragm present; in some species the hydrotheca is reduced to a collar shaped sheath around base of adult hydranths (haleciid type); hydranths with or without intertentacular web; no nematophores.

Status is likely a synonym of Eucheilota [details]
