Tubularian
Tubularian Tu`bu*la"ri*an, n. (Zool.) Any hydroid belonging to the suborder Tubularida. [1913 Webster]

Note: These hydroids usually form tufts of delicate tubes, and both gonophores and hydranths are naked. The gonophores of many of the species become free jellyfishes; those of other species remain permanently attached as medusoid buds or sporosacs. See Illust. under {Gonosome}, and {Cymnoblastea}. [1913 Webster]
