Read full entry


This hydroid consists of fine, sparsely branched stems bearing paired hydrothecae. The hydrothecae are triangular in shape, with a hair-like outer cusp. The stems are usually clustered into small bushes, and are golden-brown in colour. Typically colonies measure 100mm in height. This is a distinctive species, with finer branches than most Sertulariid hydroids.
