Several morphological features and markings differentiate the larvae (three instars) of four Leucochrysa (Nodita) species (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae: Leucochrysini) that commonly occur in agricultural areas along the Atlantic Coast of Brazil. Descriptions and keys to species are provided. Based on the characteristics of the four species studied here and four previously described species, we propose a suite of diagnostic characteristics for Leucochrysa (Nodita) larvae.
