Subfamily Cerambycinae
an exceptionally large and diverse group, with ~440 spp. in ~160 genera of 37 tribes in our area and almost 4,500 spp. in 835 genera of 66 tribes in the New World(1); 110 tribes worldwide(2)
A combination of characters usually distinguishes Cerambycinae from other subfamilies: last segment of the maxillary palp blunt; face held slanting forward or nearly vertical; pronotum rounded and widest near the middle. Some groups have spines on elytral apices; in Elaphidini antennae with prominent spines. (based on Guy Hanley's comments)
