Casey and Neaneflus
Linsley (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) of the United States with an illustrated key to species. Insecta Mundi 0954: 1–59.
The genera Aneflomorpha Casey, 1912 and Neaneflus Linsley, 1957 (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) are revised for the species occurring in the United States. Examination of all primary types has necessitated redefinition of several species that were defined originally and subsequently on erroneous character descriptions. Two new species of Aneflomorpha are described from Arizona: Aneflomorpha crypta Lingafelter, new species and A. paralinearis Lingafelter new species. One subspecies, Aneflomorpha rectilinea yumae Giesbert and Hovore, 1976 is elevated to species, new status. Six species are synonymized: Aneflomorpha citrana Chemsak, 1960 is a new synonym of A. rectilinea Casey, 1924; Aneflomorpha parowana Casey, 1924 is a new synonym of Aneflomorpha linearis (LeConte 1859), along with its synonyms A. testacea Casey, 1924, A. elongata Linsley, 1936, and A. californica Linsley, 1936; Aneflomorpha arizonica Linsley, 1936 is a new synonym of Aneflomorpha unispinosa Casey, 1912; Aneflomorpha parkeri Knull, 1934 is a new synonym of Aneflomorpha gilana Casey, 1924; Aneflomorpha texana Linsley 1936 is removed from synonymy with A. seminuda Casey, 1912 and found to be conspecific with A. werneri Chemsak, 1962, new synonym. Aneflomorpha opacicornis Linsley, 1957 is transferred to Neaneflus as N. opacicornis (Linsley), new combination, and Neaneflus brevispinus Chemsak, 1962 is a new synonym.

Natural history observations on Tetraopes and other Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from the Great Plains ecosystemBy Marlin E. Rice
Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 61(4): 412- 419, 1988
ABSTRACT: New biological information concerning host-plant associations and/or significant geographical distributions are presented for 16 species of Cerambycidae from the Great Plains ecosystem in the following genera: Ataxia, Crossidius, Dectes, Ecyrus, Mecas, Megacyllene, Oberea, Sternidius, Tetraopes, and Urgleptes. Season-long phenological data are presented for two sympatric four-eyed milkweed beetles, Tetraopes femoratus and Tetraopes tetrophthalmus. The distribution of Tetraopes pilosus is influenced by soil type and characterizations of the habitat are given based upon soil associatio
