Cosmariomyia is a small, distinctive genus of New World pachygastrines. C. albarista has been collected in El Salvador, C. argyrosticta is found throughout much of the neotropics, and C. pallidipennis is occurs in Ohio, the Southeastern United States, and parts of Mexico (Woodley 2001).
Cosmariomyia can be distinguished from other Nearctic Pachygastrinae by the dense black setae on the arista and two spines on the scutellum (James 1981).
