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.

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.

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.
