This is a Holarctic genus of moderate size. Horstmann (1973, 1974) treated Biolysia as distinct from Bathyplectes to facilitate an easier distinction of the Palearctic genus Nepiesta. Because the species referable to Biolysia do not differ significantly in habits or life histories from other Bathyplectes species and because Bathyplectes bryanti Viereck is structurally intermediate, I prefer to treat Bathyplectes and Biolysia as synonymous. Known hosts include only weevils of the genus Hypera, but the majority of Bathyplectes species have not been reared. The native Nearctic species are poorly represented in collections, and the majority of them are undescribed.
