Linsley, E.G. & J.O. Martin. 1933. Notes on some longicorns from subtropical Texas (Coleop.: Cerambycidae). Entomological News, 44(7): 178-183.

Since the subtropical insect fauna of Brownsville, Texas, was first made famous by Townsend, and later by Wickbam, Schwarz, and Schaeffer, this interesting region has been sought by many collectors. During recent years the development of good roads and improved methods of transportation have eliminated the necessity for spending long periods of time in travelling to and from Southern Texas.

Notes on the ecology and distribution of western Cerambycidae (Coleoptera).

Hovore, F.T. & E.F. Giesbert. (1976) Notes on the Ecology and Distribution of Western Cerambycidae (Coleoptera). The Coleopterists Bulletin, 30(4): 349-360.


Previously unrecorded larval hosts, adult habits, and distributional data are presented for 63 species of Cerambycidae from western North America. An unusual population of Tragidion coquus (Linnaeus) is discussed and compared to Tragidion annulatum LeConte and Tragidion auripenne Casey. The attraction of Tragidion peninsulare californicum Linsley to fire is recorded.

Vogt, G.B. (1949) Notes on Cerambycidae from the Lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas. Pan-Pacific Entomologist 25(3): 137-144; (4): 175-184.

This paper is the fourth of a series based upon the collections made by the writer in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas, during 1946 and 1947. In the annotated list that follows eighty-three species of the longhorns are given with biological notes, and in case of one species (Leptostylus gibhulosus Bates) apparent synonymy is brought to light.

New host associations for Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from selected species of Leguminosae and Rutaceae
By Marlin E. Rice
Journal of the New York Entomological Society 93(4): 1223-1225, 1985
ABSTRACT: Twenty-four new cerambycid host associations are reported from southeastern Texas. Specimens reared from Cercis canadensis, Sesbania drummondii, Sophora secundiflora, Zanthosylum clava-herculis, and Zanthosylum fagara. Plectromerus dentipes is recorded for the first time from Texas.

Natural history observations on Tetraopes and other Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from the Great Plains ecosystem
By 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
