The members of longhorn beetles are basically phytophagous and many are wood boring causing significant damage to many plants. This study discusses 28 species of such beetles belonging to 17 tribes, 24 genera and four subfamilies of agriculturally importance. Of these 13 species belong to the Lamiinae, 12 to Cerambycinae, two of Prioninae and one of Lepturinae. These had been collected from agriculture lands, fruits and plantation orchards. Brief descriptions of these along with synonyms, host range and distribution details are provided, of which 15 species are new records from different states of India.
