Abstract:

The longhorn beetles are distributed world-wide from sea level to mountain region as high as 4,200 meter altitude wherever their host plants are found. A complete checklist of longhorn beetles includes 1555 valid species recorded so far from India. Out of these species, the region wise distribution are: 592 from North-Eastern states, 272 from Northern India, 431 from Southern India, 47 from Central India, 48 from Western India, 348 from Eastern India, 18 from North-Western India, 57 from India Orientals and 121 from Indian Islands. The maximum numbers of species were recorded from North-Eastern India (38.1%) followed by southern part (28%) and West Bengal alone accounted over 22 per cent longhorn beetles.
