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. Parevander xanthomelas (Guerin) and Anoplocurius incompletus Linsley are recorded for the first time from the United States. Comparative habits or taxonomic differentiation are discussed for an additional 20 species.
