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).
Aliciidae with broad pedal disc. Column smooth, but in its uppermost part just below the tentacles
provided with 4-8 large outgrowths, which in young specimens are not or only a little branched, in
older ones more or less strongly ramified. On the branches, and more rarely on the stalk, are
hemispheric vesicles which seem to appear rather late and contain micro- and macrobasic
amastigophors. Stalks with numerous longitudinal bands of endodermal muscles alternating with
the circular muscles. Uppermost part of the column, above the outgrowths, with weak longitudinal
muscles and spots of spirocysts and nematocysts. No sphincter. Margin tentaculate. Tentacles with
stinging spots as in the column. Longitudinal muscles of tentacles and radial muscles of oral disc
ectodermal. 2 distinct siphonoglyphs. 6 perfect pairs of mesenteries and several imperfect. Retractors
diffuse, moderately developed. Parietobasilar muscles weak, basilar muscles well developed. Perfect
mesenteries, except the directives, fertile. Cnidom: spirocysts, basitrichs, microbasic p-mastigophors,
microbasic and macrobasic amastigophors.

Please note that Carlgren's text contains a number of errors, and much of the information is now out of date.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.
