The common European cerambycid Leiopus nebulosus (Linnaeus, 1758) is herein split into two sibling species. The male genitalia characters, as well as spermathecae in females, were examined and found to provide strong support for this separation. A new species, Leiopus linnei sp. nov., is based on specimens mainly from Scandinavia. The establishment of the new species is supported by DNA barcoding of Scandinavian specimens of L. nebulosus, L. linnei sp. nov., and L. punctulatus (Paykull, 1800… 
A review of the genera Leiopus Audinet-Serville, 1835 and Acanthocinus , Dejean, 1821 (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae, Lamiinae, Acanthocinini) in Asia, with descriptions of six new species of Leiopus from China
A key to the generic and subgeneric levels of Leiopus and Acanthocinus, and a dichotomous key to all six new species of Carinopus subgen.
Distribution and host plants of Leiopus nebulosus (L.) and L. linnei Wallin, Nylander et Kvamme (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Poland and neighbouring countries.
Hundreds of specimens of Leiopus nebulosus s.l. originating from different European countries, mainly Poland have been analyzed, finding that specimens of L. linnei from Poland are on average slightly bigger than those from Scandinavia.
Longhorn beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) of central Mazovia, Poland
The paper presents the results of study on longhorn beetles in central Mazovia in Poland. Observations were carried out by the authors between years 1992 and 2015. The paper includes data on the
To be or not to be a subspecies: description of Saperda populnea lapponica ssp. n. (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae) developing in downy willow (Salix lapponum L.)
The male genitalia characters were examined and found to provide support for this separation of S. populnea populnea from S. balsamifera, as well as differences in morphology, geographical distribution and bionomy.
Taxonomy and DNA barcoding of Stenostola ferrea (Schrank, 1776) and S. dubia (Laicharting, 1784) (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Saperdini)
The results, in addition to previous findings, show that despite the morphological similarities, S. ferrea and S. dubia are clearly two different species.
A checklist and areography of longhorn beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Rila Mountain
This study records two new records for Rila Mt. (Stenurellanigranigra and Xylosteusspinolae) and new localities or additional information for 24 cerambycid taxa were reported.
A new species of Neobaryssinus Monné & Martins, and two new species of Baryssiniella new genus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), reared from trees in the Brazil nut family (Lecythidaceae)
Three new species of Neobaryssinus altissimus, Baryssiniella, and several other genera in the tribe Acanthocinini are presented, all of which were reared from trees in the Brazil nut family (Lecythidaceae).
The longhorn beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) of Rtanj Mountain (Serbia).
During several field trips organized between 1996 and 2012 a total of 94 species of longhorn beetles were captured on RTanj Mt. in the vicinity of the village of Rtanj (eastern Serbia); some of these rare taxa are protected both nationally and internationally.
First record of Cortodera flavimana (Waltl, 1838) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Croatia
The discovery of two specimens of Cortodera flavimana in Croatia represents an expansion of the species’ known range and indicate the possibility of new records, at least in Croatia, and the need for further research into longhorn beetles in the country.
Contribution to the knowledge of long-horned beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Latvia
The long-horned beetle family (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) is one of the best investigated both in Latvia and all of Europe and new species for the Latvian fauna are regularly found.


Identification of Birds through DNA Barcodes
The finding of large COI sequence differences between, as compared to small differences within, species confirms the effectiveness of COI barcodes for the identification of bird species, and implies that a standard screening threshold of sequence difference could speed the discovery of new animal species.
