Description

 Nemertesia ramosa is a colonial hydroid that lives in small aggregations. Individual colonies consist of an upright and irregularly branched stem up to about 15 cm in height. An individual may have several other colonies attached to the stem. The main stems bear whorls of fine side branches of even length and upwardly pointing, arranged in groups of 6. The hydroid is yellow/orange in colour and is usually more pigmented than the similar Nemertesia antennina.
