Longhorn beetles Edit
Longhorn beetles are mainly herbivorous medium-sized beetles found in forests and hedgerows with very long antennae, normally as long as their body length. Many of the larger species have a fairly painful bite which is because of the way the adults chew wood. The family name Ceryambycidae supposedly comes from the Greek word kerambex referring to a type of horned beetle (karabos= beetle + kerax=horn). Longhorn beetles are also known as longicorn beetles in a few parts of the world.
The subfamilies are Basic longhorns (Cerambycinae), Flower longhorns (Lepturinae), Flat-faced longhorns (Lamiinae), Thin longhorns (Disteniinae) and also Aseminae, Spondylidinae, Prioninae and Parandrinae.
