Characteristics of the Genus (from Kramp 1961)

Ulmaridae in which the tentacles and lappets arise from the sides of the exumbrella above the margin; invaginated gonads with external subgenital pits. With four unbranched mouth-arms; bell margin divided into eight or 16 broad velar lobes; some or all radial canals give rise to anastomosing branches.
