Overview 
These flies were formerly included in the non-Australian family Aulacigastridae.

The adults are found mainly in spring and early summer on trunks of smooth-barked Eucalyptus or on foliage of large-leaved monocots, e.g. Alocasia and Musa. The fact that soft, newly emerged adults are often found in Eucalyptus trunks may indicate that the larvae also have an association with these trees. This family are commonly called  Nobody flies.
