This recently circumscribed tribe includes many taxa formerly treated in Aylacini , many species of which are treated by Nieves- Aldrey (1994). Members moved to Aulacideini include species that are gallers on Lamiaceae and Asteraceae ( Ronquist et al. 2015) , but do not include the gallers of Papaveraceae (now Aylacini ) or Rosaceae (now Diastrophini ).

Biology. Gall inducers on various herbaceous plants in Asteraceae , Lamiaceae , Valerianaceae , and some Papaveraceae ( Ronquist et al. 2015) . Aulacidea subterminalis have been used in the biological control of invasive weeds in North America ( APHIS 2011) and New Zealand ( Syrett et al. 2001).

Distribution. Holarctic.

Relevant literature. Ronquist et al. (2015) described the tribe; Ronquist (1994) and Liljeblad and Ronquist (1998) treated species in this group phylogenetically using morphology. Melika (2006) reviewed the western Palearctic fauna. Buffington et al. (2017) reported on Antistrophus on Silphium . Neaylax salviae was detailed in Nieves-Aldrey (2002); Zerova et al. (2003) described the morphology and biology of Salviela Melika. Life cycle of Aulacidea subterminalis has been studied in depth by Syrett et al. (2001) and introduced into New Zealand and North America for weed control.
