The third instar larvae and the pupae of Platycoelia puncticollis are described. New data on the biology, genetics, and distribution of this species in Colombia are reported and a key to identification of third instar larvae of the known species of Platycoelia Dejean (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) is provided. A 658 bp fragment of the mitochondrial COI (DNA barcode) gene is reported for the first time for the species.
