The mature larva of Agrilus antiquus croaticus Abeille de Perrin, 1897 from the stalks of Cytisus ruthenicus and Genista sp. (Leguminosae) in Kyiv and Kherson Regions (Ukraine) is described. According to the structure of labrum and location of microspinulae on inner side of maxillae, larva is attributed to Agrilus ater species-assemblage.
Larval populations of Clunio sp.1 are reported for the first time from marine fouling samples obtained in Hurghada during November 2015. This is a new record for the Egyptian Red Sea fauna. A full structural description of the larva is provided and its local distribution is discussed.

The flower- or hoverflies (Syrphidae) and particularly the subfamily Eristalinae, are known by their importance as pollinators in both natural and agro-ecosystems. Similar to other saprophagous eristalines, the larvae of Eristalis Latreille, 1804 are characterized by an elongated anal segment and a telescopic breathing tube. These features have given them the common name of rat-tailed maggots and allow them to develop in liquid or semi-liquid media loaded with decaying organic material. This paper presents the first description of the egg and the third-instar larva of the boreal species Eristalis fratercula (Zetterstedt, 1838). Morphological studies are presented based on cryo-scanning electron microscopy (cryo-SEM). After comparison with all other known species of the genus Eris-talis with described preimaginal morphology, we conclude that main diagnostic character of E. fratercula is the presence of long branched spicules located in the upper margin on the lateral lips. Finally, we provide an updated key that includes the 15 Eristalis species whose third larval stages have already been described.
