The larvae of Anchophthalmus algoensis Péringuey, 1904 and A. silphoides Gerstaecker, 1854 are described and illustrated for the first time, based on preserved material in the Transvaal Museum (National Flagship Institution) in Pretoria (33 larvae). The great similarity of the morphological structures of the larvae of A. silphoides and A. algoensis made it impossible to distinguish them. A key to larvae of known subtribe Platynotina is presented.
