Abstract

The long-horned beetles, family Cerambycidae, form a large, colorful, often-collected and well-known group. However, the drab, more primitive subfamilies, Parandrinae, Prioninae, Aseminae, and Spondylinae, are much less well-known although they often appear in collections.

In this paper, the author has attempted to list those species of primitive cerambycids which occur or are likely to occur within the State of Illinois. Keys, illustrations, descriptions, and distribution maps have been developed to aid in identification. The list and keys should be applicable to any midwestern state with the addition or deletion of a few species.
