Longicorn ID: Tool for Diagnosing Cerambycoid Families, Subfamilies, and Tribes
  • Cerambycoid beetles include the large family Cerambycidae and three smaller families: 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. When complete, Longicorn ID will provide identification support to the four families, 14 subfamilies, and 250 tribes. This update adds a Lucid key to the tribes of Lamiinae, as well as fact sheets for the 82 tribes and dorsal habitus photographs of 568 exemplar specimens. Of these new images, 251 are of holotype specimens, making this tool particularly valuable for accurate identification.
