Abstract :

In a study of longhorn beetles of the Tripura state in north-east India, 28 species belonging to 23 genera, 16 tribes and 3 subfamilies of the family Cerambycidae were recorded. Nine species under 7 genera are reported as new records from the state. This paper for the first time presents diagnostic characters, morphometry and pictorial illustrations of the recorded species based on specimens collected in the study area. This study will facilitate easy identification of these beetles distributed in the Tripura state and elsewhere.
