The little-known hydroid, Solanderia gracilis Duchassaing & Michelin, 1846, is redescribed on the basis of material recently collected at St. John, Virgin Islands, and found to be generically identical with Dendrocoryne Inaba, 1892, from the western Pacific, which thus becomes a junior synonym. Rosalinda and Chitina, the two other genera of the family Solanderiidae, are described and discussed, and the species assigned to them are considered to the extent permitted by the present state of knowledge. Keys are presented to the genera and to the recognizable species of Solanderia.
