The sexual generation of Disholcaspis is similar to those of some other Cynipini genera.
Asexual generation A and sexual generation B followed the same growth-law and were thus homologous, whereas asexual generation C (the 'fruit') followed a different growth-law and was thus antithetic to A and B.
