      Abstract: The longhorn beetles (Arthropoada; Insecta) are one of the groups of beetles, which are pests and their antennae are very long. They have been first recorded by random collection method from the 6 quadrates of Sheringal, Pakistan during August-2015 to May-2016. The specimens collected (nsc=351) were belonging to only family Cerambycidae of order Coleoptera with 3 subfamilies and 5 tribes having 6 genera and 9 species. However, subfamily Cerambycinae (covered 31.3%) has 2 tribes, Cerambycini (26.5%) with great-capricorn beetle, Cerambyx cerdo Linnaeus (16.5%) and small-oak beech-capricorn beetle, Cerambyx scopolii Füssli (9.8%); and Callichromatini (5%) with house-longhorn beetle, Hylotrupes bajulus (Linnaeus); moreover, subfamily Lamiinae (45.3%) has only 1 tribe, Batocerini (45%) with mango-stem borers, Batocera davidis Deyrolle (35%), tropical fig borers, Batocera rufomaculata (De-Geer) (3.7%) and mulberry (long horn beetle) borer, Apriona germarii (Hope) (7%); further, subfamily Prioninae (23.4%) has 2 tribes, Prionini (14%) with Prionus root borer, Prionus californicus Motschulsky (10.3%) and broad necked root borer, Prionus laticollis (Drury) (4%); and Callipogonini (9%) with pine sawyer beetle, Ergates spiculatus LeConte. They are first time reported from Sheringal. Therefore, the present research is useful for determining biodiversity of the same. Their detail study is under process.
