New taxa and notes on the systematic of Paleartic Longhorn-beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)

Abstract : 

Fifteen new taxa of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) are described from the Paleartic region, mainly from the Mediterranean region and from Middle East. One from Pakistan is described as well. New combination for Akimerus berchmansi ssp. ariannae Pesarini & Sabbadini 2007 is proposed. Turanoclytus sieversi ssp. deyrollei (Pic, 1897) and Herophila veluchianum (Breuning, 1943) are revaluated as valid subspecies and species respectively. New status for Isotomus speciosus ssp. comptus Mannerheim, 1825, Isotomus speciosus ssp. syriacus Pic, 1902, Isotomus speciosus ssp. gilanus Pic, 1911, Isotomus speciosus ssp. barbarae Sama, 1977 and Isotomus speciosus ssp. jarmilae Sl�ma, 1982 are proposed. New synonym is proposed for Isotomus speciosus ssp. syriacus Pic, 1902 = Isotomus comptus ssp. meridionalis Ozdikmen & Aytar, 2012. We confirm the following synonymy recently revalidated Isotomus speciosus ssp. speciosus (Schneider, 1787) = Isotomus speciosus ssp. ganglabueri (Pic, 1900)
