Several nomenclatural and bibliographic issues relating to Cerambycidae are discussed. Authorship of Parandra is attributed to Olivier (1803: 100) and the type species of the genus is Attelabus glaber DeGeer 1774 by monotypy. This implies several nomenclatural changes in the current classification of the New World Parandrini. Parandra laevis Latreille 1804 is an unnecessary replacement name for Parandra glaber (DeGeer 1774) and so a junior objective synonym of that species. Using the reversal of precedence application, Isocerus Illiger 1801 is considered a nomen oblitum and Neandra Lameere, 1912 a nomen protectum; similarly Trestonia Rafinesque 1815 is regarded as a nomen oblitum and Trestonia Buquet, 1859 a nomen protectum. Acanthocinus Schönherr 1817 is regarded as a nomen nudum. The type species of the following genera are discussed: Acanthoderes Audinet-Serville 1835 (Cerambyx daviesii Swederus, 1787); Anaglyptus Mulsant 1839 (Leptura mystica Linnaeus, 1758); Graphisurus Kirby 1837 (Cerambyx fasciatus DeGeer, 1775); Saperda Fabricius, 1775 (Cerambyx carcharias Linnaeus, 1758); Sternidius LeConte 1873 (Lamia alpha Say, 1827); Tmesisternus Latreille 1829 (Tmesisternus bizonulatus Guérin-Méneville 1831); and Tragocerus Latreille 1829 (Prionus bidentatus Donovan, 1805). In order to maintain nomenclatural stability, an application to the Commission should be submitted to reject the first valid type species designations of the following genera: Callichroma Latreille 1816 (Cerambyx moschatus Linnaeus, 1758); Cerasphorus Audinet-Serville 1834 (Stenocorus garganicus Fabricius, 1775); Dorcadion Dalman, 1817 (Cer
