ABSTRACT. Critical remarks on taxonomic and nomenclatural changes to genera Neocerambyx J. Thomson, 1861 and Massicus Pascoe, 1867 proposed by Lazarev [2019] are given. Some important morphological differences between these genera are presented. The genus Massicus Pascoe, 1867, stat.resurr. is reestablished from synonyms of Neocerambyx J. Thomson, 1861. The following new synonymy and new combinations are established: Neocerambyx J. Thomson, 1861 = Bulbocerambyx Lazarev, 2019, syn.n., Neocerambyx theresae (Pic, 1946), comb.n., N. dierli (Heyrovský, 1976), comb.n., N. rugicollis (Gressitt, 1948), comb.n. The following specific combinations are restored: Massicus pascoei (J. Thomson, 1857), comb.rest., M. regius Miroshnikov, 2019, comb.rest., M. ivani Miroshnikov, 2017, comb.rest., M. valentinae Miroshnikov, 2017, comb.rest., M. trilineatus (Pic, 1933), comb.rest., M. taiwanus Makihara et Niisato, 2014, comb.rest., M. fryi Gahan, 1890, comb.rest., M. scapulatus Hüdepohl, 1994, comb.rest., M. intricatus (Pascoe, 1866), comb.rest., M. suffusus Gressitt et Rondon, 1970, comb.rest., M. sufficiens Holzschuh, 2018, comb.rest., M. punctulipennis Holzschuh, 2018, comb.rest., M. venustus (Pascoe, 1859), comb.rest., Neocerambyx gigas (J. Thomson, 1878), comb.rest., N. grandis Gahan, 1891, comb.rest., N. katarinae Holzschuh, 2009, comb.rest., N. vitalisi Pic, 1923, comb.rest. The following synonymy is preliminarily established: Neocerambyx vitalisi Pic, 1923 = N. elenae Lazarev, 2019.

KEY WORDS: Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Cerambycini, Neocerambyx, Massicus, restored genus status, new synonymy, restored and new combinations.
