Overview 
Host records for Australasian species are scarce, but records from other continents indicate that they are endoparasitoids of wood-boring wasp (Xiphydriidae) and beetle (Cerambycidae and Buprestidae) larvae. For Aulacus, host data indicate they mostly parasitise xiphydriid wasps in the northern hemisphere and cerambycids in the southern hemisphere, whereas almost all records for Pristaulacus indicate that their hosts are wood-boring beetle larvae.
