Crowson (1981) included three small families in this group. DASCILLIDAE (70 the remaining species) are found in humid regions of western North America, Europe, Southeast Asia, and Australia; adults live in flowers, larvae in soil where they feed on organic material. KARU-MIIDAE (10 species) occur in drier regions of North and South America, North Africa, and Asia Minor, and are associated with termites. Females are wingless. RHIPICERIDAE (50 species) live in North and South America, eastern and southern Africa, southern Europe, Asia, and Australia. Little is known of their habits though one species is a parasite of cicadas.
