Abstract: 

A survey was conducted to identifying long-horned beetles (Col.: Cerambycidae) in Shiraz and its vicinities during July 2005-Sept.2006. The specimens were collected using different methods such as hand collecting, light trap, screen light trap, barking, rearing, and sugar trap and sweeping net. To collecting those beetles, different areas like forests, fruit trees, plateau and mountains had been searched. A total of 210 specimens related to 12 species were collected. These species have been identified and verified by Mr. Gianfranco Sama from Italy. Species were belonging to 4 subfamilies: Cerambycinae: Cerambyx cerdo (L., 1758), Xenopachys matthiesseni (Reitter, 1908), Ospheranteria coerulescens (Redtenbacher, 1850), Plagionotus bobelayei (Brulle, 1832), Hesperophanes sericeus (Fabricius, 1787), Jebusaea hammerschmidti (Reiche, 1877), Certallum ebulinum (L., 1767) Lamiinae: Pedestredorcadion brunneicolle (Kraatz, 1873) Prioninae: Prinobius myardi (Mulsant, 1842), Mesoprionus persicus (Redtenbacher, 1850), Pogonarthron minutum (Pic., 1905) Lepturinae: Stictoleptura rufa (Brullè, 1832) The external morphology of the species was illustrated using a stereomicroscope equipped with drawing tube. A key for identification of the long horned beetles, which occurred in Shiraz and surrounding is presented. The collected specimens were keeping in the collection of entomology of the Shiraz history of nature museum.
