The genus Quediomacrus was described by Sharp (1884). Two species were recognized: Q. puniceipennis (Solsky, 1868) and Q. pollens Sharp. Based on material examined from different entomological collections, this paper is a revision of the species included in this genus. One new species from Costa Rica is described. Quediomacrus pollens was collected under bark, but Q. puniceipennis is commonly collected inside of Agave sp. and Myrtillocactus geometrizans plants. This genus is an isolated group of those Quediina known from North and Central America.
