ABSTRACT. New data on the distribution of some Cerambycidae species from the Near East is presented as the result of processing the authorґs fieldworks and studying museums materials. In addition, a new information on the bionomics of some rare species is given. The taxonomic position of several species of the genus Phytoecia Dejean, 1835 is clarified. The following new synonymes are proposed: Phytoecia irakensis Breuning, 1967 = Ph. prasina Reitter, 1911 syn.n., Purpuricenus mesopotamicus Ali, 1987 = P. wachanrui Levrat, 1858 syn.n.
KEY WORDS: Near East, Cerambycidae, new records, host plants, morphology, bionomie, new synonymy.
