    The purpose of this photographic catalog of the Cerambycidae of the New World is to provide images that will assist in the identification of longhorn beetles. Many species of longhorn beetles are invasive and authoritative identifications are necessary to initiate regulatory actions. It is hoped that the images in this catalog will in part provide information to identifiers to make their jobs easier. Familiarity with the World fauna is critical to understanding the distribution of invasive species. Cerambycid workers are fortunate that in many instances a dorsal image of these beetles is distinctive.
