The only species of this small family to occur in Australia has been found near Sydney, where it is not often encountered.


The nymphs are peculiar in that the apex of the abdomen is strongly sclerotised with the epiproct and paraprocts in a ventral position forming a cover to the anus. They are probably inhabitants of the burrows of beetle larvae. [Smithers 1983.]
