The aims of this study were to understand the faunistic composition and some ecological properties (vertical distributions and seasonality) of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) of Isparta Province, Turkey.

The great majority of the cerambycid fauna of the province is in the subfamily Lamiinae. The results showed that longhorn beetle species richness peaked in May and July.
