Gosling, D.C.L. 1984. Flower records for anthophilous Cerambycidae in a southwestern Michigan woodland. Great Lakes Entomologist 17(2): 79–82.

ABSTRACT
Flower records are listed for 33 species of anthophilous Cerambycidae based on a six-year study in an 80-ha woodland in southwestern Michigan.

DISCUSSION
The cerambycids in this list are from the Lepturinae and a few tribes of Cerambycinae; no other subfamilies are represented. The three species of Tetraopes found in the study area do occasionally appear on the flowers of their host plants, Asclepias syriaca L. and Asclepias tuberosa L., but they consume the entire blossom and have been excluded here as not strictly anthophilous. A single specimen of Oberea tripunctata (Swederus) was collected from a blossom of Cornus racemosa, but was also excluded as it was not established as feeding there.
