The morphology of the fourth larval stage of eight South African Culicoides species and of the pupae of seven species was studied. The value of existing taxonomic characters was tested and several useful new characters were found. Keys were constructed for the identification of both these stages. It is hoped that these studies will form a basis for future taxonomic work on the remaining South African Culicoides species.
