This unusual group is another example of a monotypic tribe in the Cynipinae . Species are gallers on Scolopia ( Salicaceae ) in South Africa. In fact, this tribe appears to be endemic to South Africa, where a single species galls Scolopia mundii , forming unilocular stem galls ( Liljeblad et al. 2011).

Biology. Gall inducer on Scolopia mundii (Eckl. & Zeyh.) Warb. ( Salicaceae ), a tree in the eudicot subclass Rosidae ( Liljeblad et al. 2011).

Distribution. South Africa: Kwazulu-Natal; Mpumalanga.

Relevant literature. Tribe and its only species recently described by Liljeblad et al. (2011); treated again in Ronquist et al. (2015).
