From pieces of olive tree leaves with only egg clusters of Macrolenes dentipes (Olivier) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), specimens of the trichogrammatid Bloodiella andalusiaca Nowicki (1935) emerged. This is the first record for the genus and the species from Italy. The original description of B. andalusiaca is reviewed and new characters are added. Hosts of this egg parasitoid are unknown, but our observations suggest that M. dentipes is a very possible candidate.
