This is the first detailed description with illustrations for the last instar larva and pupa of Tipula (Nippotipula) sinica. Pupal characteristics resemble those of most species from advanced lineages within the subfamily Tipulinae. And, also it described with habitats and biological notes of Tipula (Nippotipula) sinica.
