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.
