Descriptions of the biology of Strepsiptera are given by Askew (1971) and Kathirithamby (1989). Kathirithamby (1989), Kinzelbach (1990), Kukalova-Peck and Lawrence (1993), Whiting (1998), and Huelsenbeck (2001) have discussed the evolutionary position of the group. Kathirithamby (1989) provides a key to the world's families (and some subfamilies).
