2 larvae from the Yixian Formation are described. One of these has morphological similarities with the ‘ultimate larval instars of Sona nectes’, and the other one is of "cordulegastrid"-type. The relationships of the ‘ultimate instars of S. nectes’ and its young larvae are outlined and their identity is addressed. The “cordulegastrid"-like larva provides new data on the early evolution of the taxa involved.
