Eidalimus is a genus of soldier flies with two representatives in the USA and Canada, four species in Mexico and Central America, one species in Brazil, and one in Argentina (Woodley 2001). A discussion of the Nearctic Eidalimus species can be found in James (1965).
Eidalimus can be distinguished from other Nearctic Pachygastrinae by the following characteristics: Antenna inserted below middle of head in lateral view; scutellum moderately convex above, with wide posterior rim; sides of scutum with flattened hairs; R4 and R5 separate (James 1981).
