Abstract

Our knowledge of the Cerambycid fauna of Western Australia is almost entirely limited to the original descriptions of species named by workers in the group. Information regarding the geographical distribution of the species occurring in the west is very scanty. The study of the Cerambycidae from this State is, therefore, of intense interest, both by reason of the unique forms occurring in this area and the distribution of species more fully known from the eastern States.
