This parasitoid species has been reared from the larval/pupal chambers of Isorhipis ruficornis (Say) (Coleoptera: Eucnemidae) in the wood of dead maple (Champlain 1922; Brues 1927; Deyrup 1985).
The following Eucnemidae were found and identified from Malaise trap samples at the same site (Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida): Isorhipis ruficornis (Say) from 5 to 12 Apr 1993, and Deltometopus amoenicornis (Say) (both Coleoptera: Eucnemindae) from 11 to 18 May 1993, 24 to 31 Aug 1993, 7 to 14 Sep 1993, and 21 to 28 Sep 1993.

Likewise, the concentration of decomposing material near the forest floor may explain why some saproxylic and scavenging groups (e.g., Scolytinae, Silvanidae, Eucnemidae, Staphylinidae, Leiodidae, Silphidae, etc.) were captured in higher numbers near the ground than in the canopy (Tables 4, 5).
