Several species of the genus Bruchophagus Ashmaed, 1888 (Hym.: Chalcidoidea, Eurytomidae) feed on seeds of pasture and medical plants and cause damage to these plants in rangelands. During 2011-2017, seeds of different plant families (Asteracae, Apiaceae, Campanulaceae, Caryophyllaceae, Ephedraceae, Fabaceae (Leguminosae), Lamiaceae, Scrophulariaceae and Zygophyllaceae) were collected from rangelands of Qom province, central Iran. Emerged wasps from seeds were collected and identified. These species were obtained from 15 host plant species among which 10 are new host plants for these Bruchophagous species. Plants that appear as new reports are marked with an asterisk: B. astragali Fedoseeva, 1954: *Astragalus compylorrhynchus Fisch. & C. Mey., *A. brachyodontus L., *A. iranicus Bunge, *A. oxyglottis Bunge; B. dahuricus Zerova, 1992: Dorema ammoniacum (D. Don. ); B. gibbus (Boheman, 1836): Trifolium pratense L., D. ammoniacum (D. Don. ); B. kononovae Zerova, 1994: *A. brachyodontus L., *A. compylorrhynchus Fisch & C. Mey.; B. medicaginis Zerova, 1992: *Medicago lupulina L., *M. sativa L.; B. mutabilis Nikolskaja, 1952: *A. oxyglottis Bunge; B. roddi Gussakovsky, 1933: M. sativa L.; B. trigonellae Zerova, 1970: *Trigonella monantha Boiss & Hohen; B. turkestanicus Zerova, 1994: D. ammoniacum (D. Don. ).
