The final state larva and puparium is described of Oecothea praecox Loew (Diptera, Heleomyzidae), reared from a puffin burrow. Puparia are also described of three other Heleomyzidae, Tephrochlaena oraria Collin reared from decaying seaweed and Suillia atricornis (Meigen) and Suillia bicolor (Zetterstedt) reared from fruiting bodies of the fly agaric fungus. These early stages are compared with puparia of 10 previously described species and 5 characters were found that may characterise the heleomyzid final larval instar and puparium. Characters identifying subfamilies were also assessed and few were found.
