    Brief Summary
    provided by Catalog of Hymenoptera in America North of Mexico
    The Cephedae are called stem sawflies because of the habit of the larvae which bore and feed in grass stems, berry canes, or stems or twigs of various shrubs or trees. Those species whose hosts are cultivated grains may be serious pests. The adults are slender, cylindrical, ichneumonlike insects and may be found around the host plant. Adults of Cephini are commonly attracted to yellow flowers in the vicinity of the host. About 13 genera and 100 species are recognized for the world, most of which are Palaearctic.
