[Nine species of Lithobius, one of Lamyctes and one of Lamyctinus are recorded from the Macaronesian Islands, Lithobius lapidicola Meinert, L. obscurus Meinert, L. (Monotarsobius) waldeni sp. n., L. (Monotarsobius) gomerae sp. n. and Lamyctinus coeculus (Brölemann) for the first time. Lithobius tenerifae Latzel and the two new species are described. It is concluded that Lithobius orotavae Latzel is a junior synonym of L. melanops Newport and that early records of L. erythrocephalus C. L. Koch from the Azores and Madeira are all due to misdetermination of L. lusitanus Verhoeff. A key is provided for the identification of all the species recorded., The larval instars of Agabus opacus Aubé, 1837 are described from cultured material attained from northern Sweden and some third-instar larvae from Canada. Larval development of A. opacus takes place in early spring and the eggs deposited in May do not hatch until late April the following year. Overwintering is thus both in the egg and the adult stage. The larvae of A. opacus are very similar to those of the closely related A. wasastjernae (Sahlberg), but differ in the 2 later instars by the presence of distinct spines on the abdomen.]
