Composition, biometry and statistical relationships between the cnidom and body size in the sea anemone Oulactis mus cosa (Cnidaria: Actiniaria
Basilar musculature, for instance, has been traditionally employed on taxonomic keys (Stephenson, 1935; Carlgren, 1949) to distinguish large groups within Actiniaria
. Certain muscles such as the sphincter not only vary in shape and degree of development, but also in the tissue derivation (endodermal or mesogleal), which, until today, has been particularly useful to define families.
Ontogenetic influences on carbon flux in Aulactinia stelloides polyps (Anthozoa: Actiniaria

Sea anemones are polyp animals of Actiniaria
, an order of skeletonless Anthozoa.

The validity of Anthothoe chilensis (Actiniaria

The complement of cnidae distinguishes the anthozoan subclasses Hexacorallia and Octocorallia (reviewed in Daly et al., 2003), and morphology of the nematocyst capsule provides the only morphological evidence for monophyly of the hexacorallian order Actiniaria
(Reft and Daly, 2012).
Sea anemones (Actiniaria

Embryonic and larval development in the Actiniaria
are diverse, often being influenced by the yolk content of the eggs, which varies among species (Uchida and Yamada, 1968; Mergner, 1971; Campbell, 1974; Spaulding, 1974; Conn, 1991).
Sea anemones (order Actiniaria
) make good subjects for a scaling study for four reasons.
