First instars of 68 species of the Siphonini were examined, including representatives of all genera of the tribe except Proceromyia Mesnil, and all subgenera of Siphona Meigen except Uruactia Townsend. Two aspects of first instar siphonines are markedly varied: features of the cephalopharyngeal skeleton and vestiture ventrally on posterior abdominal segments. These regions of first instars are described for the examined genera and subgenera of the Siphonini, in addition to four groups of undescribed, New World species of Siphona s.l. unplaced to subgenus. The phylogenetic significance of particular character states of first instar siphonines is discussed.
