Longhorn Beetles of Texas - Family Cerambycidae

443 species of cerambycids have been recorded from Texas (E.G. Riley, pers. comm., Jan. 2022)
Some 70% of the Texas total are shown here.

Ed Riley and Dan Heffern greatly assisted in finding, determining and photographing these beetles.
Specimens primarily from the following Texas insect collections: EGRC, DHCO, TAMUIC, UTIC
