Octocorals with a calcified, solid axis without a
Octocorals with a calcified solid axis exhibiting a radial
pattern in cross section, and sclerites as double heads. The only
member of this suborder and family found in the shallow South Atlantic
Bight is Ctenocella (Ellisella)
and Michelotti, 1864). The solid, unspiculated core
characteristic of this suborder makes it easily distinguishable
from other gorgonaceans.
