- Actinauge nodosa var. coronata Verrill 1883
- Chondrophellia africana Carlgren 1928
Entries in the above species list are the original binomina of species according to Carlgren's 1949 catalog. Nomenclatorial inconsistencies need to be resolved in a future revision of this genus (see below).
Hormathiidae with well developed base. Body elongated, without cinclides, divisible into scapus and scapulus, the former with a
cuticle and tubercles at least in its uppermost part, where 12 short rows of a few tubercles are distinctly conspicuous. Scapulus
longitudinally sulcated. Sphincter very strong, mesogloeal. Tentacles hexamerously arranged, almost as numerous as the
mesenteries at the base. Longitudinal muscles of tentacles and radial muscles of oral disc ectodermal. 6 pairs of perfect
mesenteries. Mesenteries of the first and second cycles, including the directives, fertile and provided with filaments and acontia,
other cycles sterile and without these organs. More mesenteries in the distal and especially proximal part than in the middle of
the body. Perfect mesenteries and the stronger imperfect ones with diffuse retractors usually situated fairly close to the column.
Below the actinopharynx the inner parts of the non-directives are curved towards the exocoels. Parietobasilar muscles weak.
Acontia well developed. Cnidom: spirocysts, basitrichs and microbasic p-mastigophors.

The information provided on this page is based on Oscar Carlgren's 1949 catalog.

Please note that Carlgren's text contains a number of errors, and much of the information is now out of date. An update of the catalog is currently under preparation in Daphne Fautin's laboratory, and the results of this work will be incorporated in future versions of this page.
Keyboarding of Carlgren's catalog was done as part of a project to create an electronic database of the sea anemones of the world, funded by NSF Grant DEB9521819, awarded to Daphne G. Fautin. This grant is in the program Partnerships to Enhance Expertise in Taxonomy
(PEET). Susanne Hauswaldt, Katherine Pearson, and April Wakefield-Pagels contributed to the keyboarding effort.
