Acontia—nematocyst‐dense, thread‐like extensions of the mesenterial filaments―are the characteristic feature of the actiniarian group Acontiaria. Phylogenetic analyses have shown that acontiate taxa form a clade that also includes some taxa without acontia. We analyse five molecular markers from 85 actiniarians to explore the phylogenetic relationships among families in Acontiaria, including acontiate species assigned to other higher taxa and species without acontia that have been allied to… 
Morphological revision of the genus Aiptasia and the family Aiptasiidae (Cnidaria, Actiniaria, Metridioidea).
TLDR
The genus Aiptasia is revised and morphological evidence that supports splitting A. mutabilis into two species is found, and a new genus, Exaiptasia gen. nov, is erected for this species primarily based on cnidae, mode of asexual reproduction and symbionts.
Anthopleura and the phylogeny of Actinioidea (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria)
TLDR
It is found that Anthopleura is paraphyletic: although species of the genus cluster together, some groups also include members of genera like Bunodosoma, Aulactinia, Oulactis, and Actinia, and this paraphyly is explained in part by the discovery that acrorhagi and verrucae are pleisiomorphic for the subset of Actinioidea studied.
Elucidating the evolutionary relationships of the Aiptasiidae, a widespread cnidarian-dinoflagellate model system (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria: Metridioidea).
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of this family are explored using five molecular markers and including newly collected material from the geographical distribution of most of the currently described genera and species, finding a monophyletic family Aiptasiidae.
Isoparactis fionae sp. nov. (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria) from Southern Patagonia with a discussion of the family Isanthidae
TLDR
The results show that Isanthidae is composed of derived acontiate sea anemones that have diversified in shallow waters of the Southern Hemisphere and that the family is putatively the sister group of a deep-sea lineage.
Hidden among Sea Anemones: The First Comprehensive Phylogenetic Reconstruction of the Order Actiniaria (Cnidaria, Anthozoa, Hexacorallia) Reveals a Novel Group of Hexacorals
TLDR
Based on the comprehensive phylogeny, a new formal higher-level classification is proposed for Actiniaria composed of only two suborders, Anenthemonae and EnthemonAE and erect subgroups within these two newly-erected suborders.
Diversity of Edwardsiidae sea anemones (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria) from Brazil, with the description of a new genus and species
TLDR
The number of edwardsiids known from Brazil is raised from two to five species, substantially increasing the diversity of soft-bottom sea anemones for South Atlantic waters.
Halcampulactidae (Actiniaria, Actinostoloidea), a new family of burrowing sea anemones with external brooding from Antarctica
TLDR
Molecular evidence is used to establish the phylogenetic position of the new family within the order Actiniaria, a new family of burrowing sea anemones from Antarctica characterized by a novel combination of morphological features: twelve mesenteries and invaginations of the oral disc similar to glandular sacs of Oractiidae Riemann-Zürneck.
Acricoactis brachyacontis sp. nov. from Adak Island, Alaska, represents a new genus and family of metridioidean sea anemone (Anthozoa: Hexacorallia: Actiniaria)
TLDR
Molecular data presented here place the family within the clade Acuticulata, and the new species therefore represents a new family, Acricoactinidae, as well as a new, monospecific genus.
Two sea anemones (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria) from the Southern Ocean with evidence of a deep-sea, polar lineage of burrowing sea anemones
TLDR
Chitinactis marmara is described, a new monotypic actinostoloidean genus from Antarctica diagnosed by its unique bi-layered cuticle on column, hexamerous symmetry, unequal development of younger mesenteries and mesogleal tentacle musculature, which suggests that Antarctica has been isolated long enough for the evolution of new genera but not for many families to evolve.
Phylogenomics, Origin and Diversification of Anthozoans (Phylum Cnidaria).
TLDR
Ancestral state reconstructions indicate that the ancestral anthozoan was a solitary polyp that had bilateral symmetry and lacked a skeleton, and a fully resolved, time-calibrated phylogeny for 234 species constructed from hundreds of ultraconserved elements and exon loci is explored.

New family of sea anemones (Actiniaria, Acontiaria) from deep polar seas
TLDR
This work describes and illustrates two new species from polar deep seas that belong to a new genus and family of acontiarian sea anemones and reviews and comment on the nomenclature of mastigophores.
Morphological phylogeny of the family Actinostolidae (Anthozoa : Actiniaria) with description of a new genus and species of hydrothermal vent sea anemone redefining the family Actinoscyphiidae
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis reveals that Alvinactis, gen. nov. and several genera previously ascribed to Actinostolidae belong in Actinoscyphiidae, and Morphological evidence fails to support monophyly of Actinstolidae, but does support monology of the previously proposed subfamilyactinostolinae.
Phylogenetic relationships among sea anemones (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria).
TLDR
It is determined that taxonomic groups based on the absence of features tend not to be recovered as monophyletic, but that at least some classical anatomical features define monophylettic groups.
*Neoaiptasia morbilla* new species (Cnidaria: Actiniaria), a sea anemone symbiont of sand-dwelling gastropods on Saipan, Mariana Islands, with comments on some other such associations
TLDR
A new species of sea anemone attach to shells of living gastropods that burrow in subtidal sand on the shores of Saipan and Tinian, Mariana Islands and is described as Neoaiptasia morbilla, which is modified slightly to accommodate this species.
Evolution of sea anemones (Cnidaria: Actiniaria: Hormathiidae) symbiotic with hermit crabs.
TLDR
The carcinoecium and complex behavioral and anatomical features associated with the symbiosis are interpreted as having evolved at least twice within Hormathiidae and seem to be phylogenetically labile.
The genus Telmatactis Gravier, 1916 (Actiniaria: Acontiaria: Isophelliidae) in Greece and the eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
Present-day winter temperatures in the western Mediterranean would at least seem unfavourable to these two species, but it is obvious that they can not have survived the considerably lower temperatures in this region during the last glacial period, 18,000 years B.P. Hence, the isolated eastern Mediterranean populations of both species probably represent interglacial relicts.
Tiefsee‐Aktinien der Familie Actinoscyphiidae aus dem IMordatlantik (Actiniaria, Mesomyaria)
TLDR
The systematic position of the family is discussed and eventually the Actinoscyphiidae is considered as sister group (sensu Hennig) of the Hormathiidae.
Phylogenetic Relationships among Deep-Sea and Chemosynthetic Sea Anemones: Actinoscyphiidae and Actinostolidae (Actiniaria: Mesomyaria)
TLDR
It is found that sea anemones of chemosynthetic environments derive from at least two different lineages: one lineage including acontiate deep-sea taxa and the other primarily encompassing shallow-water taxa.

Phylogenetic analyses of small subunit ribosomal gene sequences reveal that the Edwardsiidae are derived zoantharians, nested within sea anemones.
