The larva and pupa of Cochliopsyche vazquezae Flint are described, representing the first complete description of these stages for the genus. The larva is characterized by the possession of a prominent patch of setae on the anterolateral margin of the head capsule and by a marked concavity in the postgenal region, giving a "hollowed out" appearance to the posterolateral aspect of the head. Pupae bear a similar group of setae below and mesad of the eye. Notes on the biology and habitat of C. vazquezae in Costa Rica are given.
