Characters for identification of mature larvae of Rhantus calidus and Hoperius planatus in Georgia are evaluated and critiqued. Ma­ture larvae of R. calidus have only eight cereal sensilla (setae) while those of Hoperius have numerous medial and lateral sensilla. This is presented as an obvious and reliable character set for identification of R. calidus and H. planatus in Georgia.
