Description: Colony generally erect, reticulate, forming a lacey network with zooids opening on one side of the branches, and with extrazooidal calcification on the basal side; colony attachment by thickened extrazooidal calcification at proximal portion. Some species are delicate and branching, not forming networks. Zooid frontal with marginal pores only, surface smooth or pustulose. Zooid orifice with a sinuate or orbicular orifice; primary orifice often obscured by thickening frontal calcification. A tubular pseudospiramen may develop on the proximal side of the peristome by coalescence of the marginal processes. Articulated oral spines may be present. Ovicells hyperstomial; prominent initially, becoming immersed in secondary calcification. Proximal margin of orifice may be elaborated into a projecting lip, or straight, or indented. Ovicell frontal with a frontal pore or slit. Avicularia generally present, of varied types in different species; mainly adventitious, with interzooidal avicularia in a few species.
