Forewing of female Isoplatoides bifasciatus, from Bouček (1988).

Belongs within: Pteromalinae.

Isoplatoides is a genus of wasps parasitising a wide range of host insects, many of them developing within plant structures such as seeds or galls. Members of this genus often (but not always) have bands or spots on the forewing; males have two anelli in the antennae and resemble the related genus Pteromalus, but can be distinguished by the presence of several rows of rather short and dense sensilla lineara on the funicular segments (as opposed to usually single rows in Pteromalus—Bouček 1988).
