Species in this family are characterised by hardened forewings which are covered with fine punctures. The base of the forewings are also covered by tegulae, as in the Cixiidae. T. impressopunctata is the only British representative.
A scarce species restricted to high quality chalk downland and calcareous dunes in southern England and Wales, where it is largely ground-dwelling. The ecology is poorly known, and may involve associations with ants.
