Cerambycoid BeetlesThe cerambycoid beetles include the large family Cerambycidae as well as three smaller families previously classified as cerambycid subfamilies: Disteniidae, Oxypeltidae, and Vesperidae. Together, these families are a charismatic and economically important group of beetles with an estimated 4,000 genera and 35,000 described species worldwide. Cerambycoids (also known as "longhorned beetles" or simply "longicorns") are among the most serious wood boring pest species in the world, affecting various agricultural crops, ornamental trees, and lumber products, causing millions of dollars in damage each year.
Longicorn ID is intended to aid in the identification of cerambycoid beetles to family, subfamily, or tribe.
