Smicromyrme tekensis Skorikov, 1935: 317  , ♀, lectotype—♀ (designated by Lelej 1976): Dzhulek, Syr-Dar'inskaya oblast, 13.06.1912, L.M. Wolmann ( Kazakhstan) [Zoological Institute, St. Petersburg], examined.

Material examined: Iran, South Khorasan: 1 ♀, reared in July 2013 from puparium of Carpomya vesuviana  collected in Mood (32 ° 42 'N, 59 ° 31 'E, 1839 m), Sarbishe, 33 km SE Birjand; 1 ♀ reared in Jan. 2012 from puparium of C. vesuviana  collected in Razg village (32 ° 53 'N, 59 ° 13 'E, 1470 m) in the vicinity of Birjand.

Distribution: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Iran (new record), China (Xinjiang), Mongolia.

Two mutillid species from the subfamily Dasylabrinae (genus Chestomutilla Brothers, 1971) and six species from the subfamily Mutillinae  (tribe Smicromyrmini, genera Smicromyrme Thomson, 1870  and Physetopoda Schuster, 1949  ) parasitize Diptera  (see Appendix). All mutillids were reared from six species of flies, which belong to the families Syrphidae  , Tephritidae  , Glossinidae  , Rhinophoridae  , and Tachinidae  (all are from suborder Cyclorrhapha). In spite of their importance, only a few mutillids currently are known as a parasitoids of Diptera  , but in future this number is expected to increase.
