The fourth instar larva and pupa of Culicoides trilineatus Fox, a species consideredas potential vector of the bluetongue virus (BTV) in Central and South America, aredescribed, illustrated, and photomicrographed for the first time by using binocular,phase-contrast, and scanning electron microscopy. The immatures were collectedby using a siphon bottle in tree-holes in Salta Province, Argentina, transported tothe laboratory and there bred to the adultĀ“s emergency. They are compared withthe immatures of C. debilipalpis Lutz, another Neotropical species that breeds intree holes. Details on larval biology and habitat are given.
