The cerambycids (longhorn beetles) are known as very attractive insects, as well as pests, especially inforestry. Our investigation and collecting the specimens on the territory of Serbia has started in the middle ofthe nineteenth century. Up today, 242 species were registered in the fauna of Serbia (Ilić, 2005). The firstinformation about cerambycids in Serbia was published by Bobić (1871). Significant contribution inresearching of the family Cerambycidae was given by Košanin (1904). Finally, there were several domesticauthors occupied by longhorn beetles: Adamović (1950), Mikšić (1963), Ćurčić et al. (2003) and Ilić (2005).In this review forty-nine species reviewed from 34 genera which belong to five subfamilies: Prioninae,Lepturinae, Spondylidinae, Cerambycinae and Lamiinae. Examined material has been collected in theSoutheastern Serbia. The most numerous were the subfamily Cerambycinae, comprising 18 species from 15genera.
