Abstract

There are more than 35,000 cerambycid species in the world (Švácha and Lawrence 2014), with over 1000 species, representing over 300 genera, in North America. Adult cerambycids vary greatly in size, from as short as 1.5 mm in length (Decarthria stephensi) to as long as 167 mm (Titanus giganteus) (Haack 2016). Nearly all cerambycids feed on plant tissue as both adults and larvae, but cerambycids in the genus Elytroleptus are one exception whereby they mimic and subsequently prey on adult lycid beetles (Eisner et al. 2008).
