A revision of the American species of Prionus Geoffroy, 1762 is presented. Prionus (Neopolyarthron) Semenov, 1899 and Prionus (Antennalia) Casey, 1912 are synonymized with Prionus Geoffroy, 1762. Homaesthesis LeConte, 1873 is considered a true subgenus of Prionus. Prionus (Homaesthesis) rhodocerus Linsley, 1957 and Prionus (Homaesthesis) linsleyi Hovore, 1981 are synonymized with Prionus simplex (Casey, 1912). Prionus beauvoisi Lameere, 1915 and Prionus (Neopolyarthron) debilis Casey, 1924 are… 

Diversity of the longhorned beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) from Cuatro Ciénegas Basin, Coahuila, Mexico

A first checklist of Cerambycidae from seven localities of Cuatro Ciénegas Basin shows the paucity of knowledge of insects in the deserts of Mexico, with 37 species, from which 13 are new records for the state of Coahuila and three species represent new record for Mexico.

Annotated checklist of the beetles (Coleoptera) of the California Channel Islands

An annotated checklist documenting species-by-island diversity from an exhaustive literature review and analysis of a compiled dataset of 26,609 digitized specimen records to which were added over 3,000 individual specimen determinations found that species diversity is highly correlated with island area.

Biogeographic units in the Chihuahuan Desert: Implications for regionalization and area nomenclature

There are several biogeographic regionalizations of the Chihuahuan Desert province, which differ in the criteria used, and the names and categories given to the different units recognized. We

The Longhorned Beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) of Idaho

Ecological and distributional data are presented for the 134 species, plus six subspecies, of longhorned beetles known to occur in Idaho.



Correction to the known distribution of Prionus (Homaesthesis) simplex (Casey) (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae)

Prionus (Homaesthesis) simplex (Casey) was described (Casey, 1912:253) from one male specimen from Kansas with no further data. The specimen is in the United States National Museum and is illustrated

Division of the genus Nothopleurus Lacordaire, 1869 (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Prioninae)

The genus Nothopleurus Lacordaire is reviewed and generic limits redefined, and four species are transferred to the new genus Hovorodon gen. nov. is proposed and Cerambyx maxillosus Drury is designated as the type species.


The main aim of this work is to clarify current status of these subfamilies Vesperinae Mulsant and Prioninae Latreille in Turkey.

Notas sobre Prioninae neotropicais (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae)

A short synopsis, a description of a new species ( Sarifer seabrai, from Dominican Republic) and a key to the genera of neotropical Closterini are presented. Among the Prionini, Prionus

Longhorned Woodboring Beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae and Disteniidae): Primary Types of the Smithsonian Institution

A catalog and color images for the 2,000+ primary types of cerambycids held by the United States National Museum of Natural History (NMNH; Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC USA).

The Pupa of Prionus laticollis (Coleoptera: Cerainbycidae)

Pupae of the broad-necked root borer, Prionus laticollis (Drury) were collected from apple orchards in northern Rhode Island between June 20 and July 11, 1968, and a record was made of its pupation in the laboratory.

The long-horned beetles of south Florida (Cerambycidae: Coleoptera): biogeography and relationships with the Bahama Islands and Cuba

The presence of a "distance effect" is surprising, since it is usually considered that only during the past 10 000 years has the southern tip of the Florida peninsula been fragmented, but the presence of this effect is surprising.


Eggs, larvae, and pupae of E. rufulus along with an unknown cerambycid larva and pupa were successfully amplified and digested by this method to verify validity of this technique for multiple life stages.
