- Gyrostoma glauca Annandale 1915
Nevadne: Nevadneidae with small pedal disc and elongate body, broader in the distal part than in the proximal. Column smooth, but its nematocysts arranged in small groups. The outermost exocoelic tentacles are the largest. Mesenteries of the youngest cycle doubled, as a result of an extraordinary increase in the outermost tentacles, accompanied by the origin of an exocoelic tentacle and thereafter of an endocoelic one on either side of the outermost tentacle. As a rule only the mesenteries of the second cycle are fertile, but traces of gonads may occur on some mesenteries of the first cycle.

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.
