Minyas: Column smooth or with papillae in its upper part, with spirocysts. Fosse distinct. Sphincter weaker or stronger circumscribed. Tentacles short, papilliform, the exocoelic tentacles in a single row, the endocoelic tentacles may show a tendency to form two rows? Usually ten pairs of perfect mesenteries and ten pairs imperfect ones (sometimes some of the latter can reach the uppermost part of actinopharynx). The endocoels are strongly enlarged, the exocoels strongly reduced so that perfect and imperfect mesenteries lie close to each other in longitudinal furrows on the column and form secondary pairs with the retractors facing away from each other. Retractors strongly restricted, parietobasilar muscles broad but not folded. Cnidom: spirocysts, basitrichs, microbasic p-mastigophors.

Please note that Carlgren's text contains a number of errors, and much of the information is now out of date.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