  Cnidaria
In fact, an attribute of the entire class Anthozoa is the absence of a medusa.
Ptychocysts are the most taxonomically restricted in distribution, occurring only in the anthozoan order Ceriantharia; their function is to entangle bits of mud among their robust tubules to form the feltwork that constitutes the tube of these burrowing animals.
Anthozoa is alternatively considered the most basal or the most derived group.

 Coral - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Corals (class Anthozoa), which include sea anemones (order Actiniaria), are gastrovascular marine cnidarians (phylum Cnidaria) existing as small sea anemone-like polyps, typically forming colonies of many individuals.
The group includes the important reef builders known as hermatypic corals, found in tropical oceans, and belonging to the subclass Zoantharia of order Scleractinia (formerly Madreporaria).
Pure red coral is known as 'fire coral' and it is very rare because of the demand for perfect fire coral for jewellery-making purposes.

 Anthozoa Fossil Record
The origins of the Anthozoa lie in the Precambrian, but concrete evidence is sketchy.
In any case, there is molecular evidence to suggest that the Anthozoa are the earliest branch of the phylum Cnidaria (Bridge et al.
Cambrian-age localities with soft-bodied organisms preserved also include some soft-bodied sea anemones and "sea pens", such as Mackenzia and Thaumaptilon from the Burgess Shale and Xianguangia from the Chengjiang biota of China.

We are analyzing genetic diversity in deep-seamount octocorals with the ultimate goal of studying the effect of retention and dispersal of larvae on genetic population structure.
The 18S rRNA gene may be insufficient for establishing robust phylogenetic hypotheses concerning the specific relationships of the Corallimorpharia and the Ceriantharia, and the branching sequence for the orders within the Hexacorallia.
We have detected significant length variation in the gene, with homologous gene fragments ranging from 545 base pairs (bp) in a shallow-water scleractinian coral to 911 bp in a deep-sea antipatharian fl coral.

 The molecular properties and applications of Anthozoa fluorescent proteins and chromoproteins - Nature Biotechnology
The green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria and its fluorescent homologs from Anthozoa corals have become invaluable tools for in vivo imaging of cells and tissues.
Anthozoa GFP-like proteins are available in colors and properties unlike those of A.
In addition, several Anthozoa GFP-like proteins have been developed into novel imaging agents, such as monomeric red and dimeric far-red fluorescent proteins, fluorescent timers and photoconvertible fluorescent labels.

 [No title]
A reassessment of what is known about the distribution of apical flaps in nematocysts of the cnidarian class Anthozoa is offered here as a first step toward understanding if any phylogenetic significance can be determined from apical structure.
The three flap structure is known to occur in only one class, Anthozoa (sea anemones, corals) whereas the operculum occurs in the other three classes: Cubozoa (box jellyfish), Scyphozoa (true jellyfish), and Hydrozoa (Hydra, Portugese-Man-O-War).
Thus, apical flaps may be a phylogentically useful trait as an apomorphy of Actiniaria, rather than the Anthozoa, however, a survey of Anthozoa is necessary to determine the distribution of this character.

The phylum is divided into 4 major classes: (1) Hydrozoa (Portuguese man-of-war and fire coral), (2) Scyphozoa (true jellyfish), (3) Cubozoa (box jellyfish), and (4) Anthozoa (sea anemones).
Most Anthozoa organisms are sessile creatures, and anemones found within the US tidal zones have minimal toxicity.
Risk of infection from a coral cut is of greater concern than the toxic effects of the coral.

The reason I do not like this distinction, however, is that more cnidarians violate this characteristic than follow it.
As I said last month, there are four classes of Cnidaria: the Hydrozoa (hydroids and hydromedusae), the Cubozoa (box jellies or sea wasps), the Scyphozoa (true jellyfish) and the Anthozoa (sea anemones, corals and sea pens).
Of about 10,000 living species of Cnidarians, nearly 6,000 are in the Class Anthozoa, which is, in turn, divided into three subclasses.
