(Chun, 1886)

Fragile anterior nectophore, up to 10 mm in height, apparently ridgeless, but with folds. Small mouth plate with oblique basal facet and shallow hydroecium. Somatocyst spherical borne on a long stalk. Small, rounded bract with small phyllocyst. The posterior nectophore is hard to distinguish. In general form the anterior nectophore resembles that of Lensia meteori, but the shape of the somatocyst clearly distinguishes them.

Lensia subtilis
