Abstract The pupa and the adult of Stilobezzia (Stilobezzia) coquilletti Kieffer are redescribed and the larva described for the first time. All described stages were photomicrographed and illustrated by using phase-contrast microscope, plus Scanning Electron Microscope in the case of the larva. Immature stages were collected in a shallow stream of sandy botton nearby Manaus, Brazil. The pupa and the adult are compared with its similar congener Stilobezzia (S.) fiebrigi Kieffer, and the larva with S. (S.) antennalis Coquillett.
