Although the genus Idiocerus is well known in the Palearctic and Nearctic regions, our knowledge of the Ethiopian species is still very limited. At the present time ten species are included in Idiocerus from this region, seven from Africa and three from Madagascar. The first species to be descriptionbed were haupti and quadriocellatus from Tanzania, by Melichar in 1908.
