Resumen:
The fourth instar larva and pupa of the Neotropical biting midge, Forcipomyia (Forcipomyia) rioplatensis Marino and Spinelli, are described and illustrated using phase-contrast and scanning electron microscope. Larvae, pupae and adults of Forcipomyia rioplatensis were collected from nests of the monk parakeet, Myiopsitta monachus monachus (Boddaert), in San Vicente, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. Larvae have character states typical of other species of Forcipomyia with herbivorous ceratopogonid larvae. This species is compared with its very similar Nearctic congener, Forcipomyia (F.) bipunctatapropinqua Chan and LeRoux.
