Walshe (1950, 1951), has descriptionbed the biology and behaviour of the immature stages of Rheotanytarsus rivulorum Kieffer, a European species, but so far nothing has been recorded about the young stages of R. fuscus Freeman imagos of which, collected from the Great Berg River, Western Cape Province, were descriptionbed as a new species by Freeman in 1954. The larva and pupa of fuscus are therefore descriptionbed in this paper, and some notes on their behaviour and ecology given.
