Description of the immature stages of Parapoynx restingalis Da Silva and Nessimian, 1990, with notes on its life history (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae: Nymphulinae)

The ultimate instar larva and the pupa of P. restingalis Da Silva and Nessimian, 1990 are described and figured for the first time, based on material collected in the type-locality of this species. Caterpillars live in marsh areas of the "restinga" (sand dune vegetation) environment of Marica, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, and feed on the floating leaves of Nymphoides humboldtianum (Menyanthaceae) and Nymphaea ampla (Nymphaeaceae).
