Siphonoglyph completely separated from the other parts of the actinopharynx to which it is joined by a strip of the mesogloea, in its uppermost part drawn out in a conchula. Pairs of mesenteries 8 (6 primaries and 2 secondaries in the lateral exocoels), all perfect, fertile and similar. Retractors and parietal muscles about as in Peachia.
