The larvae of Eutomostethus punctatus (Konow, 1887) and E. gagathinus (Klug, 1816) are described and illustrated for the first time, and the larvae of E. ephippium (Panzer, 1798) and E. luteiventris (Klug, 1814) are redescribed. Their larval biology is summarized and evaluated. Carex hirta (Cyperaceae) is the first verified larval host plant of E. gagathinus, and C. brizoides (Cyperaceae) for E. punctatus.
