Read full entry


A small athecate hydroid which is easy to recognise due to its bright orange coloration. The rounded polyps are borne singly at the top of thin tubular stems and typically bend over to one side. Height about 10mm, polyps about 2-3mm. The coloration of this species is enough to distinguish it from Eudendrium species, which are otherwise similar.
