The larva is described and figured, based on various instars and on the exuviae of a reared specimen. It is the first larva described for the genus. The habitat, laboratory observations on the larval stage, and the affinities with other aeshnid larvae are discussed. A generic key to the larvae of Brazilian Aeshnidae is appended.
