The number of marginal tentacles in this species is equal to and opposite each of the primary (inner) tentacles (Williams, 2000), which updates the description given by Manuel (1981). The secondary (outer) tentacles can actually slope downwards alongside the column due to the lack of adjacent marginal teeth. This species is gonochoristic, and asexual reproduction occurs via budding arising from the existing polyp walls or the basal coenenchyme
