Idiomacromerus Crawford, 1914  

This genus of Torymidae   ( Microdontomerinae   ) is known to be represented in asphodel seeds by a single hitherto undescribed species. It was reared in abundance as a parasitoid of Bruchophagus gijswijti   in seeds of A. fistulosus   by Antoni Ribes, who prepared the following description not long before his death.
