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).
Sagartiidae with well developed base. Column divisible into scapus and scapulus, the former with a cuticle, usually easily
deciduous, and with tenaculi which rarely are very weak, but usually strong and with a stratified cuticle. Column with cinclides
formed by ectoderm as well as by endoderm and situated in various places, sometimes in reduction. Margin more or less distinct.
Sphincter strong, mesogloeal. Tentacles of variable length, conical, hexamerously or irregularly arranged. Outer tentacles with or
without basal thickenings on the aboral side. Number of tentacles usually fewer than that of the mesenteries. Longitudinal muscles
of tentacles and radial muscles of oral disc ectodermal. One to four siphonoglyphs, 1-4 pairs of directives. Arrangement of
mesenteries hexamerous or irregular. At least 6 pairs of mesenteries, usually 12 or more are perfect. Mesenteries growing from the
limbus upwards. Perfect mesenteries and sometimes the stronger imperfect ones with strong diffuse retractors which are extended
over the whole surface, but never restricted nor circumscribed. Parietobasilar muscles not strong. The stronger mesenteries,
including the directives, fertile. Acontia well developed. Cnidom: spirocysts, basitrichs, microbasic p-mastigophors, microbasic

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Please note that Carlgren's text contains a number of errors, and much of the information is now out of date.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