The species of the genus Meteorus  are koinobiont endophagous larval parasitoids of Coleoptera  and Lepidoptera  . Meteorus pendulus  ( Müller, 1776) and Meteorus rubens  (Nees, 1811) have been found on Eupoecilia ambiguella  , while Meteorus colon  (Haliday, 1835) was obtained from Sparganothis pilleriana  .
