The larval and pupal stages of Simulium (Rubzovia) paraloutetense Crosskey are described following their first discovery in a spring trickle in Gran Canaria Island where the species is endemic; data from the polytene chromosomes of the larval silk glands are included. Subgeneric placement of the species is revised in light of all the findings. A diagnosis for the subgenus Rubzovia, a discussion of its geographical distribution and habitat, and a key to the four known species are included.
