Sertularella ornata is a medium sized hydroid with visible purplish gonotheca and with asymmetric short branches. It was collected on Eudendrium sp. as well as on bedrock.

Some authors consider this species to be conspecific with
Sertularella ellisii, but Soto Àngel and Peña Cantero (2013) are of the opinion that this is a separate taxon.
