Lamiinae

Lamiinae is the scientific name of Lamiines -also called flat-faced longhorned beetles-


Lamiinae Latreille, 1825

P.A. Latreille is the author of the original taxon.

Lamiinae Latreille, 1825 is the full name of the group-subfamily in the taxonomic classification system.

The subfamily has 74 tribes, 3,007 genera and subgenera (2,622 genera plus 385 non-nominal subgenera) and 21,793 species and subspecies (20,408 species plus 1,385 non-nominal subspecies).

Phylogeny

All studies support the monophyly of Lamiinae within the family Cerambycidae.
See for example: (Haddad&al. 2018), (Li&al. 2023).

Simplified representations inspired by some of the most interesting phylogenetic studies:

Concerning the phylogeny within the Lamiinae, the studies remain limited and their results are partially different.
See for example: (Souza&al. 2020), (Ashman&al. 2021).

The following representation attempts to combine results and propose a synthetic view of the possible phylogeny until the tribal level.

This incomplete and provisional reconstruction based on published results already shows that the current classification is not satisfactory in view of the numerous cases of paraphyly and polyphyly. Improving and generalizing analyzes will require revisions and redefinitions. Some tribes will be enlarged, others divided or reunited; new tribes, subtribes and genera will be created showing the incredible diversity within the Lamiinae of the World.

À propos des entomologistes lui exprimant leur étonnement de la multitude de groupes qu'il admet dans la Famille, Th. Lacordaire (1869) écrivait qu'il ne pouvait mieux se justifier qu'en s'inspirant des échanges entre F.P. Pascoe et L. Fairmaire : "Si les Divisions inférieures de la Famille des Longicornes sont traitées de cette façon dans toute l'étendue de cette dernière, il deviendra nécessaire d'en établir plusieurs centaines, et je ne suis pas sûr qu'on ne finira pas par trouver cet arrangement le plus naturel."
