Abstract

Nineteen species of cerambycid beetles found co-inhabiting Tepehuaje (Leucaena pulverulenta, Fabaceae) girdled by adult Oncideres pustulata LeConte at the Sabal Palm Grove Sanctuary, Cameron County, Texas, USA, are listed and their habits briefly discussed. Literature concerning cohabitation of O. pustulata girdles by other longhorned beetles is reviewed. Characters for separating larvae of O. pustulata and the closely-related Lochmaeocles c. cornuticeps (Schaeffer) are enumerated. Other insects associated with O. pustulata-girdled Tepehuaje include 14 species in the beetle families Buprestidae, Curculionidae, Bostrichidae, Tenebrionidae, Mordellidae, Trogositidae, Cleridae; and the Tineidae (Lepidoptera).
