This is a primitive scolioid group whose closest relationship appears to be with the Tiphiidae.
The family is known from the single genus Sierolomorpha which has six New World species
ranging from North America south to Panama, one possibly adventive species in Hawaii, and
two Old World species from North China and Tadzhikistan.
There is no information on host relationships, but the lack of a tarsal pecten in Sierolomorpha
females suggests that they are not fossorial in habit.
